Stopping off for a parkrun… Run Report #6

If you’re driving from Illinois to South Carolina where’s a good place to stop for a break? Third Creek Greenway parkrun of course!

2019-11-30 event

The Holdcroft and Heck families were on this epic voyage and timed a break perfectly to stretch their legs along our free 5k. That’s the wonderful thing about parkrun - all ages can take part - as well as four-legged friends (provided they’re on a short leash).

And our course is perfect for running with strollers - it’s paved throughout with only a couple of bumpy places on the bridge. 


Among our regulars there were a flurry of personal bests. Setting new course records were Nancy E, Mary, William, and Nancy H - who was also first female finisher this week! Congratulations.

And it was a first first-finish for Jonathan on his 73rd parkrun!

Third Creek Greenway parkrun is put on by volunteers each week so a huge thanks to Sam, Heather and Rebecca who all volunteered for the first time this weekend!

Volunteer roles at Third Creek Greenway parkrun are easy, fun, and don’t require a lengthy commitment. You’ll get a briefing about roles at 8:45am and be on site until the Tail Walker has crossed the line. 

We are on the lookout for a couple more volunteers for December 7 and December 14. Some roles can be combined with taking part in the run. Please email to find out more.

Since launching on October 26 2019, Third Creek Greenway parkrun has had 78 individual finishers and had 16 individuals volunteering.

We are back next Saturday at 9am. Don’t forget to register and don’t forget your barcode!
