Clermont Waterfront parkrun
Event number 329
29th February 2020
Participants were lucky to have perfect running temperatures and a beautiful clear morning as they faced the start line this weekend at the Clermont waterfront park run. Many new participants also got to enjoy the great atmosphere. We were happy to have a group from Ocoee Elementary come out for the first time. It is always exciting to meet new park runners, and to watch young kids like those from the Ocoee elementary getting involved with the sport. This week 120 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 23 were first timers and 20 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 16 different clubs took part.
Congratulations to local park runner Libby Brouwer on completing her 50th event. She recently ran a PB of 32:00, and seems to be nearing that time again. Although overseas visitor Sarah Aldridge did not reach a milestone this weekend, it is worth shouting out her impressive total of 551 events. She has been participating in events since 2010, an extremely respectable commitment. This also goes to show the established history that park run has created over in England. Here at Clermont park run, we hope to encourage the spread of other events in the US (and offer a welcoming familiar environment for European visitors). Hopefully someday our Clermont participants will reach 500 events too!
