Barry Curtis parkrun
Event number 362
8th August 2020
Bit wet today then! It has been quite some time since we had such a wet parkrun and the numbers reflected that with 114 people running, jogging and walking the course with us this week. Andrew, our poor run director today, was trying his best to get through all his spiel, but there was a lot of desire from those gathered to just get going. However H&S all ticked off, and later, after a coffee at the lovely Sequel Cafe, the faces were smiling!,
So we had just 2 first timers today, one doing his first parkrun and one visiting us. Welcome to Barry Curtis and thank you for your dedication to come out in this weather! Hopefully the friendliness of the people made up for the rainy start to the day.
We did however celebrate a number of milestones: Carl doing event number 250 today - what an achievement - well done! Kate on her run number 200 today, Neil and Selina on their event number 150, and Rox on number 50. Way to go to you all. We also acknowledged Rosalie for her 200th last week in Cambridge, and Prisha, one of our juniors, completing 10 events last week. Congratulations from us all for your great work in achieving these milestones.
We had 11 recorded new Personal Bests, notably three of our juniors Austin, Taylah and Anwen. That is a good effort in conditions like today.
The event was made possible by 15 volunteers:
Karen CROSSAN • Peter ROUT • Kate PATTINSON • Grant LINCOLN • Ray FREEMAN • Rosalie FREEMAN • Gareth JESS • David EVEREST • Ronald LOBJOIT • Keegan KOKKE • Angela WALLACE • Caitlin SHALLARD • Rebekah SHALLARD • Andrew SHALLARD • Nicola CRAWFORD
Thank you so much for your help and support with this event - we really can't do it without you. And so to all you others out there - why not give it a go. We have quite a few gaps over the next few weeks. You can add your name to the board on a Saturday morning, or check out the roster on our website and send us an email. Our volunteer coordinator, Ray, would love to hear from you.
