Perrigo parkrun #27 was a cold and wet day, but that did not dampen the spirits of 31 parkrunners and 10 volunteers! I guess this was just not the day to try parkrun for the first time, as we had no local first timers. However, we did have visitors from Thornbury parkrun in the UK (welcome Angela Kerr!), and from Vancouver, Canada (welcome Thomas Faulkner & Rebecca Williams!).
We had a nice round and even 10 PBs today. Congratulations to Nelson LaPlante, Aditya Shrivastava, Kelly Lyon-King, Tadeusz Dul, Rupert Bader, Lizzie Lee, Bill Schwabenland, Jon Payne, Erik Schnieder & Carla Schneider. Nice work guys!!
Stefano Gallotti ran his 202nd parkrun (13th at Perrigo). Wow!
Rupert Bader PB’d by a whopping 3 ½ minutes – AMAZING – Go Rupert!
Our first junior u-10 runner was Ms. Evie Pepper with an incredible time of 34:40!
Carla Schneider was the 27th runner home at Perrigo parkrun no. 27
Our top 3 male runners were Dan Metteer (19:39), Lars Schneider (21:31) & Kevin Sorensen (21:38)
Our top 3 female runners were Kelly Lyon King (26:33), Angela Kerr (29:43) & Rebecca Williams (29:53)
As always, thank you so much to our amazing volunteers. They make parkrun possible each and every week. This week we had Alison Payne, Allison Prather, Bill Schwabenland, Damyan Pepper, Gabriella Drewer, Jeff Mitchell, Jorge Besada, Kerstin Pepper, Mary Blake and Niamh Carrig.
If you would like to volunteer, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always looking to fill our future volunteer rosters. Without volunteers, there is no parkrun!
Perrigo parkrun is having an “Ugly Sweater” run on Saturday December 14th. So don your ugliest Christmas sweater and any and all festive clothing and come and join us. We would love to have a table full of holiday treats, so if the festive baking spirit moves you, please feel free to bring a treat to share!:)
Perrigo will also be hosting a special New Year’s day run at 8:30am. We are having it early as Renton parkrun is hosting their parkrun at 10:30am and we want to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to attend both events - it is the only day of the year where you can complete 2 parkruns in one day!
Look forward to seeing you all on Saturday!
