Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 115
4th November 2017
This week 212 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 23 were first timers and 41 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 22 different clubs took part.
These awesome people all ran their first ever 5k parkrun!:
Jon BEACHAM, Gregor VINCENT, Douglas VINCENT, Alex WOTHERS, Kirstie OAKLEY, Mark PATCHETT, Beatrice CRAMPIN, Julie BLACK, Gary CHAMBERLAIN, Dave AMBLER, Mae CARTER, Katie HODGETTS, Sue HODGETTS, Ryan MORGAN
We gave Ryan MORGAN a special mention as he is usually volunteering and cheering runners up the hill so it was great to see him run his first ever parkrun at age 6 and come smiling over that finish line. A very lovely moment!
Super kudos to all our first timers and everyone else!
The event was made possible by 26 enthusiastic volunteers:
Vicky HONEYBOURNE • Nigel GARDNER • Mark WALLACE • Natalie Louise CARR • Lucy BROOKS • Sarah PRICE • Andrea FORD • Andrew T DAVIES • Jocelyne ADAMS • Alison MACDONALD • Neil CRABBE • Adrian FORD • Andrew GARLICK • Carole EVANS • Lisa GARLICK • Stephen MOORE • Lindsay TILLSLEY • John FRANCIS • Julie ROBERTS • Teresa LIPPITT • Ian BELL • Carole HENDER • Sharron JEPSON • Katherine IVINS • Debbie JACKSON • James PAYTON
We said a huge THANK YOU to Andrew T DAVIES who volunteered for the 25th time (and FOURTEENTH consecutive Saturday!!) and so now joins the milestone volunteer club. Andrew was joined by lots of his friends from Bridgnorth Running Club and we are grateful to them and all our wonderful helpers for giving up their time to ensure a smooth, safe and enjoyable parkrun.
Have you volunteered yet? If not - what are you waiting for?? Email us at email@example.com now and get your name on our roster. Thank you!
Also joining Andrew in the milestone clubs this week is junior Tristan REAVES who ran his 10th parkrun. great work Tristan.
Ronald LYNES has broken his own ACR again this week!! The VM record now stands at 29:23. What will Ronald do next?! We can't wait to see!
Finally, thank you so much to everyone who donated to our appeal for funds. As RD Andy said on Saturday: parkrun is, and always will be, free to run but the kit and equipment we need for the run is not. We have to buy it from our own donations pot. Much as we hate to ask for money, we cant replace essential kit without donations. So I am incredibly grateful to everyone who donated this weekend - I can't find enough ways to express our gratitude but once again - THANK YOU!!
See you all next week
