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
