Wotton parkrun #168 – 22nd February 2020

After a rare week off thanks to Storm Dennis it was back to the Community PARC for Wotton parkrun #168.


The wind and the mud made it a challenging run for all, but the rain stayed away and the sun shone brightly as 43 parkrunners ran, jogged and walked the Wotton Butterfly in high spirits.


We welcomed 11 first timers to Wotton this week including first finishers Nicholas Dobson and Lindsay Veevers. We were delighted to host tourists all the way from Torquay and many from parkruns closer to home.


Congratulations to Louise Sydney who ran her very first parkrun - awesome work! And well done to Finn who ran his 10th parkrun - great effort Finn, and thanks to Kirsty for the cookies!


Huge thanks to our 16 amazing volunteers who made Wotton parkrun possible this week - they were Karen Payne, Kate Ball, Grace Morgan, Kerry Morgan, Ann Fitzjohn, David Fitzjohn, Alice Lewis, Kirsty Beasley, Pauline Draisey, Michael Brown, Sue Smith, Pete Wintle, Christine Gordon, Mary Lennox, Helen Lennox & Amy Watson.


Next week will be the very first leap day parkrun - we hope to see you there! Remember that parkrun parking on 29th will be at the top car park by the skate park entrance (New Road), to allow space for the primary school cross-country races around KLB school field.


** FINISH TOKEN #44 is still MISSING. Please check whether you accidentally took it home last month. We'd love to hear from you if you did, so please get in touch so that we can use it again this week**
