Run Report – 9th October 2021

Yesterday reminded me how much I love parkrun!!

It was a warm, dry morning and West Park looked beautiful as ever, apart that is from the historic bandstand which is undergoing some much-needed renovation work.

Ten of my immediate family members were there, including four grandchildren looking forward to their ride around the park. There was the usual buzz of anticipation at the start, and smiles of relief and pleasure, some etched with a little pain, at the end!

We had a full volunteer rota; they were a great bunch and all seemed to enjoy themselves. We were especially lucky to have medical expertise amongst our tail walkers for the minor (we hope!) injury sustained by one of our runners – thanks Jaye!

And, to cap it all, results processing was very straightforward using the new phone app. This has proved to be a big improvement, and is so easy to use – even I can manage it!

So, thank you all for running, walking or run/walking; and thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers, especially some of our regulars; Sharon and Clare on Timekeeping, Maggie on Scanning, and Sharon on Number Checking, who have given us such great support since the restart. You’re all stars!

This week 284 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 28 were first timers and 36 recorded new Personal Bests.

David NORMAN • Harry CRESSWELL • Tim RICHARDSON • Jeff JONES • Jaye RYAN • Karen RIDD • Clare DENNER • Andy JARVIS • Hayley DILLOWAY • David SMITH • Sujan SHARMA • Maggie BREWIN • Laurence GILKS • Bertie SWIFT • Becky JOHNSON • Monika AMOR-WILKES • Hazel FLATLEY • Sharon WRIGHT • Myfanwy TERRY • Satwant KAUR • Trevor FLETCHER • Sharon ELSON
