Fairview Parkrun report #86 (Parkwalk week 4)

What a great event at Fairview Parkwalk/ Parkrun this Saturday the 23rd. The sunshine was quite a change from last week, bringing nearly perfect conditions to the route and maybe even encouraging a few extra participants to turn out!

This week we welcomed 137 people who ran, jogged and walked the course. As part of this, we had visitors join us from Ellesmere Port, London, Belfast, Donegal, and St Anne's (Dublin).

For those who like statistics, 33 were first timers and 40 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 11 different clubs took part. Congratulations to all of these participants!

As always, we would never be able to have any Parkrun event without our volunteers. Eighteen "hi-viz heroes" stepped forward to make sure that our participants were welcome and could complete the course safely. Thank you to each and every one!
