It turned out to be a lovely morning for a run. The grass was wet after the overnight rain, but the park continues to be in great condition and hazy sunshine bathed the joggers in warmth as they performed their feats of athletic endurance! It was lovely to have new joiners and guests come along today, in addition to our more regular runners. Lots of kids too, which is great to see :-)
Well done to all who joined us this morning. In spite of the recent heavy rain, the ground was in very good condition. A big welcome to our guests and new joiners - hope you enjoyed the run. It's great also to see lots of families come along and run one, two or three (or whatever is suitable) laps.
What a lovely sunny morning for a run. The ground was pretty damp after yesterday's rainfall, but otherwise the course was in great condition. Great to see Risborough Rangers JFC back as well - added a buzz to the park. Well done to all that took part. It's great to see more and more people coming to join in with whatever distance they were comfortable with - it's not just about doing 5k, but getting out and running with others in a friendly environment. Special mention to Rose Thompson who has now run 56 times with us. Followed closely by Andy Vere with 53 runs. Pretty soon we will have three more runners join the 50-run brigade - John Romaya (48 runs), Laura Waterton (46 runs) and Debbie Williams (44 runs).
It rained, and it wasn't supposed to :-) Still, the light showers didn't ruin the enjoyment of the morning and, in fact, cooled things down nicely for the runners. Standing around at the finish line getting rained on was a different matter, however (thanks Louise!) :-) Well done to all 27 runners who came along. We had some first timers - delighted you joined us - and some good PBs in there as well. Particular kudos to youngster Noah Brookes who ran all 6 laps, Andy Duffy who ran 5k in 22:09 while pushing a buggy and Kali who is making great strides after not being able to run for a while.
