Clermont Waterfront parkrun
Event number 324
25th January 2020

Clermont Waterfront parkrun finished out the last of event of January on a high note. There were multiple milestones, many new personal bests, fast times, and some first timers. Hopefully the rest of the year will build off of the fantastic events we have already had in the first month. This week 111 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 10 were first timers and 16 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 10 different clubs took part.

Congratulations to Jerry Lykins on completing his 200th parkrun! Jerry has been attending parkrun since all the way back in 2013, and has been coming out regularly ever since. Both Kay Melvin-Barnes and Tom Smith finished their 75th event as well. Kay volunteers regularly, and has helped out with a variety of positions including barcodes, finish tokens, marshals, and tail walker.  While competing in events herself, she has also managed to work in volunteering and is a great remainder that we always appreciate the help of our volunteers. Tom started Parkrun in 2016 and has steadily dropped his time from a 27:04 to a PB of 20:36 in November. Finally, Paul Whitehouse celebrated his 25 run this weekend in a time of 26:20. Congratulations to all of these runners on their accomplishments and everyone else who came out to participate. 

We hope to see you next weekend!
