It’s been so busy in parkrun land that I’ve struggled to keep up!
New Year’s Day was so busy with loads of you doing double runs across 15 different parks.
We had Jenny Sharp in Swindon, Ian Porter in Millom, Lake District, Jenny Evans in Keswick and Whinbater – achieving 1st female too!
David Geeson was in Bolton, and Paul Marklove did a double in Bicester and Witney.
Dave Rickart celebrated his 50th parkrun with a great gathering of WRC friends at Warrington. Mike Atkinson hit the 100 milestone and Caroline Newton hit 25 runs.
Steph E-Humphries and Tom Humphries have reached the 50 club across 17 different courses and many Personal bests week after week!
Well done to Ray Clark who was the second Male to finish at Widnes.
Congratulations to Lisa Rodick Sarah Plant, Brenda Jones Turnbull Bernadette Barnard Sarah Moss who all got a personal best too 👏👏
Saturday January 5th Parkrun internationally had the highest ever attendance! We helped hit this landmark with 65 WRC runners at 13 courses across the globe. Phil Walton ran at Redland Bay in Brisbane, Carolyn Jones in Perth and Stefano Cossu ran in Terme near Florence, Italy 🇮🇹
On English soil we had Ann Marie Hatton run at Gunnersbury in London and Anna Begbie was the first female finisher at Crewe.

A extra well done to Kayleigh Harden who’s times are getting quicker since her return to running after having her gorgeous baby boy 👍
We are making up our own sub category for buggy running personal bests- Sarah Lee and Harry are getting quicker each week with fab Harry even running 1 mile himself this week!!
Great to see Sarah Bishop enjoying her 25th parkrun with the obligatory balloon!! Joanne Skyner records show it was yours too but no pictures of your balloon?!
This weekend (12th) Phoenix Parkrun in Runcorn is celebrating its 100th event and they really want to have over 100 runners. If you can make it, do try and help them achieve their goal.
