The weather, although significantly drier than last week, was decidedly chilly this morning. Trying to keep the finish funnel away from the damaged grass, caused last week, was the challenge set for our band of volunteers on Pre-event setup this morning. Great job guys.
This week 394 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 19 were first timers and 65 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 34 different clubs took part.
Our congratulations go to the following;
Paul MARTIN, completed his 100th parkrun, while Mark KEMP, Maurice DILLEY, Rob THORLEY, Steve TUPPER and Sandra YOUNG were all taking part in their 50th parkrun.
Also hitting his 50th was junior runner, Ethan NEALE. Ethan only started ‘parkrunning’ on 3rd November 2018 and has PB’d six times going from 25:03 in his first parkrun to 19:45, achieved a couple of weeks ago. Thanks go to his Mum who brings him along each week.
There were ‘milestones’ amongst our volunteers as well this week. We recognise people when they have volunteered on 50 separate occasions at Worthing, and this week our thanks and congratulations went to Clare KENNARD, who was out marshalling at the ‘Burlington’. Thanks Clare for all your support
