Event 279 – 11/11/2017

Event 279  -  11/11/2017

In spite of a stiff breeze on Saturday some awesome times were posted including 2 new age category records. Major congratulations to Paul Elliott who has been cutting major chunks out of his time over the past few weeks and record 22:22 on Saturday for a new VM70-74 record. Not to be out shadowed the ladies look like they have a new star with first timer Isabella Richardson burning up the course close on the heals of the first runner home in a time of 18:32, 5th place overall and setting the new record for JW11-14. I have a sneaking suspicion that her times will improve even further as she gets used to the course.

Even if you didn't set a new record or pb it was great to see you all on Saturday. We're looking forward to doing it all again next Saturday. Please remember to volunteer - a couple of times a year from each of you is all it takes. Have a great week.

Volunteering

parkrun cannot operate without the assistance of volunteers. We encourage parkrunners to volunteer three times a year, of course more if you'd like! If you're injured and need a rest from running, we would welcome your help. Go onto the Cornwall parkrun webpage and email cornwallhelpers@parkrun.com  to register your availability and which Saturday you can volunteer.

If you would like to run and volunteer you can do an earlier ‘freedom’ run or even write the run report for our website! Anyone wishing to volunteer their talents as a photographer is most welcome too.

Many thanks to our local sponsor Foot Mechanics Podiatry  We are foot and lower limb professionals.  Foot pain, arch pain, heel pain, shin pain, knee pain and lower back pain are our areas of expertise.  We use leading technology and world class professional development to ensure our Podiatrists are able to find and treat the cause of foot and lower limb problems.
