637 parkruns, 501 unique first finishers. Run report 19 Aug 2019

Before Saturday, we had recorded 499 different first finishers, female and male. This week Clara Horswell and Joe Gebbie tipped us over to 501 as first timers and first female and male finishers.

For the stats fans among us, that means every couple of weeks or so, someone who's never finished first before at Woodhouse Moor does so.  On the other hand, Treena Johnson, our age graded record holder, has finished first 42 times and Matthew Akpan 40 times.If you want to see the full list of first finishers, it's here (see if you can spot Ali Brownlee!)  As we all know, though, parkrun is always a run, jog or walk and never a race. We'll celebrate with you whether you're first or further down the field!

We had a few milestones this week, Bartosz Lewandowski ran his 250th, which just happened to be his 150th at Woodhouse Moor, Claudia Bauer and Andy Best ran their 200th and Phil Fisher his 150th. There were six new members of the 100 Club, Gabriel Kilner, Caroline Crossley, Anny Chui, Eleanor Morden, Dominic Makohin and Andrew Furber. Natalie Falshaw, Louise Gilbert and Kevin Lally ran their 50ths.

Next week, we'll see the launch of 5k Your Way, the third in Yorkshire. This community-based initiative is to encourage those living with and beyond cancer. They will be running or volunteering with us the last Saturday of every month.
