worthing parkrun event #201: Saturday 9th October 2021


What a glorious morning for a worthing parkrun.

This week 310 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 24 were first timers and 53 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 37 different clubs took part.

Despite the sunshine, it was beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Worthing parkrun this morning.


Heidi CHRISTMAS celebrated her 100th parkrun this morning, while Lana CHRISTMAS celebrated her 50th volunteering milestone this morning, and wait who is that barcode scanning? Could it be Haydyn CHRISTMAS! Lots to celebrate hope you all enjoyed the sunshine.

Today Tom NINER was our first male runner with a time of 16:20, and Sarah FLANAGAN our first female runner at 19:23.  Great job both of you!

The Worthing parkrun never feels complete without our animation of the morning from Uncle Ramjam; thank you enjoy that wristband Uncle Ramjam!


We hope you all enjoyed this morning and thank you as always for making Worthing parkrun so special.  To all of you running tomorrow's Worthing 10k we wish you the very best of luck.
