How fast do these weeks go!
Can't believe we not got anything written down on here for the last few weeks so will give a quick update.
Lots of new runners still joining us each week as well as the familiar faces, Bev and Gary both got a 7 day pass to Workington Leisure Centre for achieving their 10th Workington runs, congratulations - please let us know (just in case we forget!!) if you reach this landmark and we can sort you a pass out too.
The placings for the 13th event were:
Chris STEELE (SM30-34) (Unattached) was first over the line in 16:25 - first appearance.
Mark WALSH (SM30-34) of Ellenborough AC, was second over the line in 17:11.
Robert MORRIS (SM20-24) of Derwent AC Cockermouth, was third over the line in 17:41
Lucy STOBBART (SW25-29) (Unattached) was first (14th overall) over the line in 20:36
Sheila MCVEIGH (VW55-59) of Cumberland AC, was second (23rd overall) over the line in 23:33
Bev FAULDER (VW35-39) of Seaton AC, was third (25th overall) over the line in 24:11.
Well done to all on event 13, we had 23 new runners and 17 personal bests which is just great to see.
Thank you to Bex - yet to actually run a parkrun - who brought in cakes for the apri run refreshments to celebrate her birthday - more of those please!
Well done to Cathryn Johnston who was our August Sweatshop parkrun prize winner - if Gary is anything to go by after donning his new pair then Cathryn should be getting a new PB on her next outing, he's had two since winning the July pair!
Thank you to all of those who have volunteered in these last 4 events and those new faces stepping forward to let others run. It really isn't a hard job, it's a great event to be involved in.
We will be having a get together after the run on the 28th September over coffee for those who are interested in supporting the organisation of the event - Craig Kershaw, Shaun Cavanagh, Dave Heaton and the McVeigh's have been integral in getting it on it's feet but they do also like to run and it would be good to have some others in there to share the work load - but it doesn't mean you can't run - just to support in organising those who can marshal, get run set up and getting the runners over the line and those who can bring experise in the web side of things and can get an update on here regularly and keep the facebook page going which is crucial in spreading the word.
So please if you are interested stay behind for a few minutes after the run on the 28th.
Finally as we're approaching the 14th event can we also thank Carlisle Leisure Ltd who provide us with the storage, a member of staff each week, refreshments and get all the results online for us which makes it even easier for our volunteers.
Week 14 this week! Bring it on.
