As parkrun day draws ever closer, and Fletcher’s Cove parkrun has run #200 within its sights, it is a good time to reflect on what was another splendid day on the tow path on Saturday, 9 November 2019.
Run 194 attracted 64 people, including 10 first timers (4 parkrun first timers and 6 tourists), who set about enjoying the beautiful scenery along the C&O canal. The sunshine was bright, but this week saw the appearance of wool hats, gloves and long sleeves for the first time. As the temperatures gradually drops, the role of the volunteers become ever so more important.
A special thanks to the Ailce and Michael Bender for coordinating the roster and many thanks to Carter BEACH, Chris BRUCE, Dan and Lisa OWEN, Glen STIRRAT, Kai OLTMANNS, Matt CHURCHWARD, Michael NELSON, Rob KEMPSELL and Scott Parke CAMPBELL for giving up your time to let your fellow parkrunners enjoy their 5km run, jog, stroll or walk.
This week saw 5 new PBs, 6 juniors and the event index increasing to 41, which means at least 41 parkrunners have completed the event at least 41 times. For more random and interesting facts, be sure to check out Tim Keer’s report he posts on the parkrun USA facebook group. It makes great Sunday morning reading.
Our Co-Event Director and parkrun USA Ambassador, Andres, ran all the way to and completed the Anacostia parkrun, in order to collect our newly 3D printed finish tokens tray.

That concludes the round-up of Fletcher’s Cove parkrun #194 and I look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday.
