Rain & Cookies…Report #89

Conditions & Participants

While we avoided any major downpours, we had a steady sprinkling of rain this Saturday. Four veterans came out to complete the course. Mark also showered us with chocolate chip cookies - which were amazing! We were also excited to see the third bridge on our course got a little tune up. It now has three new boards in place. Thanks to Parks and Recreation for this improvement!

Three slats were replaced on our third bridge!

Volunteer Call & Appreciation

Thanks to all of our volunteers who made this week’s parkrun possible - Amanda Burnette, Meredith Hale, Evan Snyder, Lauren Snyder, Alex Snyder, and David Talmy. If you’d like to volunteer at a future event, please email thirdcreekgreenway@parkrun.com. We can always use more volunteers and will make sure you find a role that’s fun for you. See our future volunteer roster or our spreadsheet to help us fill in our gaps.

Future parkruns

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

Note that we won’t be holding a special extra parkrun on Thanksgiving day. We’d encourage local runners to sign up for the Regal Knoxville Turkey Trot.

Since launching on October 26 2019, Third Creek Greenway parkrun has had 303 individual finishers and 55 individuals volunteering.
