Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 147
7th July 2018

This week 193 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 23 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 18 different clubs took part. It was another hot morning weather-wise and so serious kudos to all who took part!

Well done first time parkrunners:

Alex HOLLIS, Billy RICHARDSON, Lewis Matthew COOPER, Darryl LIGHT, Dawn PRIESTLEY, James BRACE, Lea Maria ALDENHOVEN, Scarlett APPLEGARTH, Thomas PRICE, Melanie PARKER, Lilia Grace FORD

And there were plenty of milestones too! Well done to Paul SCURRELL and Louise SYLVESTER on their 50th parkruns and to Forest Monster Frances GEDDIE who ran her 100th! Super dedication from all of you.

And last but certainly not least - thank you to David STARKIE who completed his 25th parkrun as a volunteer to earn his purple t-shirt this week! Much appreciated David.
