Spring into Spring! We’ve reached event 42

Hey all!

The sun is starting to shine on the West Coast again.

Well we're 8 events off the big 50, anyone who's been with us from the start will be looking forward to their 50 tshirt! Don't think anyone is quite there in terms of running, I think Bev is probably the closest at 36. Shaun should get one though, for not missing one since the start in June, not sure if they give them to volunteers though! But we know you're a parkrun hero Shaun!

Speaking of t shirts, well done to Cameron Lawler who reached his 10th run on Saturday so should have a shirt in the pipeline.

Our February Sweatshop winner was Sharon Jones, hope to see some new dazzlers at the bottom of her legs hitting the track in the near future.

Welcome to the 15 first timers who rocked up this week and well done to visitor Adrian Holliday from Tipton Harriers broke the track record and to the 34 runners with new PB's achieved, a fantastic result, must have been the lovely weather! We've had some great runs over the last 4 or 5 weeks, 92 at one event, lets try and keep those figures up.

We had a great group of new starters from the St Bees Triers, don't be strangers guys hope to see you again soon.


Just a quick request regarding volunteering, firstly thank you so much to those who have helped with setting up, managing the event and helping tidy up at the end but there is always room for more help. Tony, Sheila and Shaun are there every week and there are other regulars who take a break from running to support but it we'd love to give these guys a run every now and then so if our Workington parkrun friends are able to offer a Saturday morning to manage over the stopwatch (it's not that hard, honestly!) that would be much appreciated.

Good luck this weekend!
