parkrun #80 – September 1, 2018

Labor Day weekend & we celebrated with 37 walkers & runners; along with two of our favorite barkwalkers, V & Lucy.

A big shoutout to Manfield parkrun's founder Karen Crane.  Karen celebrated her 50th parkrun & it was a good morning to mark this milestone.  Other memorable items from this weekend include 12 PB's attained by the following:  Doug Heestand, Max Nwosu, Kevin Horrigan, Erica Frasher, Aaron Zhu, Kim Reece, Diana Shealy, Rob Von Hasse, Jena Whitcomb, Gary Purvis, Dave Falquette & Reagan Swords.  Congrats to all these runners & walkers.

Thanks to our volunteers who make parkrun possible each week.  They show up early to check out the trail, pick up trash, set up turnaround cones.  They cheer us on & make sure we get an accurate time, are safe on the trail, and input the results into the computer.  There's a lot that goes into parkrun each week & we couldn't do it without our volunteers.  If you or someone you know might be interested in volunteering, please contact us, by e-mail, facebook or signing up some Saturday morning at parkrun.

The event was made possible by 12 volunteers:

Karen CRANE • Steve CRANE • Linda KLINE • Chris SCHOLL • Amanda STANFIELD • Jon FULWIDER • Logan MONTGOMERY • Bob KLINE • Kevin HORRIGAN • Hudson CULP • Edward THIGPEN • Edward THIGPEN

June 30, 2018 – parkrun #71

For parkrun #71, our 8:00am start was appreciated by everyone who came out to run & walk this morning. Mansfield along with much of the country is dealing with the sizzling temperatures. Hey, its summer in Ohio this is what we expect, warm & humid conditions.

With forty five participants, including jr. runners who came out to run with parents & friends, youngsters who got the pleasure of being out on the trail in strollers, our walkers & runners plus our one barkrunner Lucy, it was a great morning for parkrun.

Mark Craig & Tom Priess came to run & visit with us this morning. Mark is from England & his parkrun is Milton Keynes. Tom was in from Michigan & his parkrun is Livonia. As Tom was over in Canton to visit family, he decided to give Mansfield's parkrun a go & go he did. Tom came across the finish line first with a time of 18:18! Considering the humidity & the temps in the mid 70's, it was quite an achievement. Candice Cochran was a first timer who joined us from Galion. Candice said she enjoyed parkrun & that we'd see her again.
