Our morning started off with 446 parkrunners arriving to run their weekly 5k fix. 43 were first timers and 60 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 19 different clubs took part.
We all welcomed the Operation Transformation crew who where attending our wonderful event at St. Anne’s parkrun. We had our local Operation Transformation Leader Felicity Moroney in attendance accompanied by Kathryn Thomas and Rebecca Fox who were onsite to encourage and support Felicity every step of her way. Such an inspirational morning. Everyone at St. Anne’s parkrun is so proud of you, well done Felicity.
The atmosphere was electric as our pacers lined up to guide everyone around the parkrun route and encourage you all to reach your target goals. Thanks to Damien, Michael, Dylan, Keith, Richie, Eleanor, Una and Laura who all did a fabulous job.
