13/10/2018 Wyre Forest parkrun #161 Dave’s Birthday brightens a breezy day

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 161
13th October 2018

This week 143 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 10 were first timers and 15 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part. Lots of races taking place this weekend so we assume that you were all resting!

Just a handful of first-timers joined us this week - undeterred by Storm Callum, well done all:


The event was made possible by 27 volunteers:

Mark WALLACE • Andrew T DAVIES • Steven SMITH • Emma MORGAN • Andy MORGAN • Graeme ANDERSON • Tom ANDERSON • Lindsay TILLSLEY • John FRANCIS • Deborah NEWBOULD • David FISH • Anthony NEWBOULD • Gavin MILLICHIP • Sara HARRIS • Carl PRICE • Kevin HARRIS • Ryan MORGAN • Daren JACKSON • Pauline SMITH • Gill JONES • Debbie HYRONS • Ben PARKES • James PAYTON • Zoe ELKIN • Sarah JORDAN • Steve REDDING • Mason PRICE

Once again I say an extra hearty thank you to you all on another windy morning!

Little Mason PRICE was the star of the show once again as he high fived all of this week's finishers as they crossed the line!

We wished a Happy 49th Birthday to Forest Monster Dave SMITH - see above rocking the famous orange Monster colours!

Please don't forget that it's our Halloween Themed Run on October 27th! It's always a fun event in the parkrun calendar and hopefully many of you will get in to the 'spirit' of things again this year (see what I did there?!)

See you Saturday!

PS Thank you Gav Millichip for the fab photos in this week's report!
