8/6/2019 Wyre Forest parkrun #195 CMRC takeover!!!

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 195
8th June 2019

This week it was very wet and soggy in the forest, but we don't let a little bit of rain put us off! 189 people braved the weather and ran, jogged or walked the course. 24 of these people were first timers, and 35 recorded new Personal Bests.

This week was a volunteer take over week! Members of Cleobury Mortimer Running Club filled all our volunteer positions; I'm not sure we've ever had so many marshals out on the course! Huge thanks go out to:

Vicky HONEYBOURNE • Kim HOOD • Shirley THOMAS • Lindsay B PULLEY • Rob REYNOLDS • Andrea FORD • Joanne WATSON • Fiona CLARKE • Adrian FORD • Andrew GARLICK • Katy BROOME • Dawn LLOYD • Lisa BIGGS • Lisa GARLICK • Heather MORGAN • Lindsay TILLSLEY • Faye HOPKINS • Vicki KELLY • Deborah NEWBOULD • Luke WILLIAMS • Sara HARRIS • Donna PERRY • Paul SCOTT • Sallie SHAW • Netty COLLEY • Pauline SMITH • Ben PARKES • James PAYTON • Tom BENTLEY • Nikki TROMANS • Sarah JORDAN • Olive KELLY • Catherine WILLIAMS • Jo HAYWOOD • Kathleen BREAKWELL • Paul SKELLERN • Maisie WHITE • Patrick YARRANTON-GREEN • Steven TURNER • Gemma PARKER • Christopher HANCOX • Jo LIST • Gavin CHANCE

Cleobury Mortimer 10K - 7th July at 10 am
For the second year running, Cleobury Mortimer Running Club (CMRC) is proud to host the Cleobury Mortimer 10K race around the beautiful Shropshire town of Cleobury Mortimer. The race follows the same route as last year, starting in Cleobury's historic market town before heading out on the undulating Shropshire country lanes then returning up the now infamous 'Ron Hill' and through the well supported residential streets for a final victory lap to the cheering crowds. If you haven't yet signed up, there are only a few places remaining! Please follow the link from our website: https://www.runcleobury.org/10k-info

Look at the concentration on their faces!

We had lots of tourists with us today, including visitors from Colchester, Redditch, Northampton, Telford, Bournemouth, Salisbury and (somewhere in!) Wales! We really hoped you enjoyed our lovely parkrun. Our visitors from Salisbury were celebrating, as Abi Tansley was running her 50th different parkrun (having run 94 times in total)! Thank you for choosing us to be your 50th! Also celebrating was Sarah Lupton - she was running her 50th parkrun; and Alan Gobidon was running his 50th consecutive parkrun. If you are ever celebrating a milestone, please let us know!

I will leave you with a few more photos - see you all soon! Happy running - Jo x
