With a conflicting ultra event at waterfront park, the Clermont parkrun was moved to the trail this past Saturday. The trail always slows times down a little bit, but the beautiful paths through Hiawatha Park make for an enjoyable change of pace. The temperature was perfect, at right around 60, and the surface was in great condition. This week 131 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 22 were first timers and 7 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 15 different clubs took part.
We had a lot of major milestones to celebrate this weekend. First was Carolyn Harmon, who completed her 150th event. In addition to being a frequent runner, she also volunteers regularly and is a valued member of the Clermont parkrun community. Overseas visitor Eleanor Anne Martin did not just finish her 100th event, but she finished it in style with a new Clermont Parkrun PB of 28:45! She has come to this event 6 times from the UK, her first back in 2017. Junior Ray Butcher, also from overseas completed his 50th event here in Clermont.
The event was made possible by 15 volunteers:
Kimberly GROGAN • Kendyl CARDWELL • Hector CLEMENTE • Josh CASTLEMAN • Sharon GALLANT • Andy PIERCE • Jim PICKERING • Harry BARNES • Shane HILL • Kay MELVIN-BARNES • Dottie HARDING • Judy RICHARZ • Ron MITCHELL • Chris SEYMOUR • Sherry KELLER
