16/02/19 Wyre Forest parkrun #179 run report

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 179
16th February 2019

This week 241 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 38 were first timers and 35 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 26 different clubs took part. If you were one of our first timers, then welcome! We hoped you enjoyed it and come back again soon!


The event, as always, can only go ahead thanks to our wonderful volunteers. Please join me in thanking:

Vicky HONEYBOURNE • Kim HOOD • Mark WALLACE • Andrea FORD • Joanne WATSON • Matthew BAILEY • Neil CRABBE • Adrian FORD • Andrew GARLICK • Duncan STARKIE • Dawn LLOYD • Kirsty WILKES • Lisa GARLICK • Amy SMITH • Paul SCURRELL • Gavin MILLICHIP • Kevin HARRIS • Pamela SCARBOROUGH • Tim SCARBOROUGH • Pauline SMITH • Debbie HYRONS • Diane STEVENS • William SMITH • Nikki TROMANS • Mark SHELDON • Jill WALKER • Mason PRICE • Patrick YARRANTON-GREEN • Steven TURNER

This week, volunteer Paddy Yarranton-Green, gave our new runners briefing. Paddy has had a difficult year, and so being able to stand up in front of a group of people and speak publicly was quite an achievement. Thank you Paddy - you did a great job.

Congratulations to Harry JEFFERSON and Oliver BLAKEMORE who both ran their 10th parkruns this week, and to Paul NEWRICK who ran his 50th parkrun! If you are celebrating a milestone parkrun, please come and tell one of our volunteers! We love to give you a shout out at the start as well as a mention in our run report.

It was a quiet news week this week at Wyre Forest parkrun, so I shall leave you with a few more photos from Saturday.
