The morning drizzle gave way shortly after our runners and walkers took to the course and by the time we were packing up to go after our tailwalker crossed the finish, the sun had come out!
During the run briefing, our 5 newbie parkrunners were recognized and warmly welcomed.
Thanks to our awesome crew of volunteers this week, pictured above! From left to right, Marcy was our photographer who captured all of the pictures you see in this report as well as on our Facebook and event pages. Cathryn was RD and also timekeeper, Patrick handed out finish tokens, Melani tail walked, Nikol scanned barcodes and Ken was our first turn-around marshal.
We spotted our first locally-earned 10 shirt in person, claimed by Leyla earlier this year. We're so glad she's modeling it for the other would-be junior parkrunners, as it will surely help motivate them.
Congrats to AJ, Jordan and Tommy (pictured above with his barkrunner Peanut) who all claimed PBs this week!
We welcomed a few guests from London and as previously mentioned, 5 first-timers. Here's one of our first-timers, Brennan, who showed up a few minutes late but still managed to catch up and be our first finisher this week. We're glad you found us when you searched for "5K event near me" online! Tell your friends! Tell everyone!
It was a busy week for the barkrunners, as we had 2 on the volunteer crew and several more running or walking with their humans. Contreau accompanied Matt with an incredible amount of energy!
It was nice to see Meghan and Devon back at parkrun this week, running side by side and catching up on life!
See you next week for our festive holiday themed parkrun! Here's a sneak preview of Cam who was dressed up this weekend as a warm up to her gig as RD next weekend.
