64 WRC runners did a parkrun this weekend and we had some great achievements.
Honorary member Kieran celebrated his 100th run at Warrington 🎉Encouraged by his dad Martin Thomerson he got a Smashing PB, finished 11th and 1st in age category. He was joined by mum Clair Baldock and the fab Blurples included parkrun as part of their 11.5 mile run so they could all give him support and share the great cake!
At Phoenix we had 3 runners, Mike Metcalfe finished 2nd, Anna Begbie 1st female and Mike Atkinson 7th male. Well done WRC!
John Taylor was our only runner to venture further than the north west and ran at Gateshead Parkrun.
Chris Millington (flying feet!) well done in being 3rd Male finisher at Warrington and Paul Marklove who finished 2nd at Northwich with his second 20:00 time. Next time sub 20!
Great Personal bests for Amanda Hughes, Sue Smart, Dawn Porter and Laura Owen.
Now drum roll please for some massive news…… Sky tv are creating a programme all about the amazing growth and impact of parkrun. Our very own Kirsty Morley has been chosen to feature in one of the programmes and filming will take place at Warrington Parkrun on February 9th and Junior Parkrun at Orford Hub on Sunday 10th. It would be brilliant to see loads of WRC vests on tv and of course great to support Kirsty who will be feeling very nervous. So put it in your diaries and we will see you there!!
