It was 40 degrees warmer at today's start than the last time we ran parkrun - and today was just at the freezing mark. Layers came off and some sported shorts! The sun was shining and, though the snowy trail stopped any PB's, a good time was had by all as we celebrated a year of parkrunning. Mayor Timothy Theaker was on hand, though he says he is no match for College Park's mayor Patrick Wojahn, who has completed 29 parkruns to date. Maybe this is your year to join parkrun, Mayor Theaker!
Jon, likely to be our first homegrown 50 finisher, is being a good sport about the party hat!
There were five first timers today - welcome to Barbara, Ashley, Caroline, Brittany and Vicki! We'll add Caroline to the results as soon as she registers. They all have now completed the most challenging run on the trail to date. Well done and we hope everyone returns next week!
Congratulations to Linda Kline, one of our run directors, as she completed her 25th volunteer event today. Nelson Shogren braved the trail on his bike in his 10th volunteer effort. He was bike lead out on his way to being the turn around course marshall. Thanks to both of your for your continued support!
Many thanks to today's volunteers: Amy BARGAHISER, Steve CRANE, Karen CRANE, Kay HUNT, Linda KLINE, Bob KLINE, Karyl PRICE, Nelson SHOGREN, Mark ARNOLD
