All things bright and runderful
18 runners ran to help the parkrun - Eastville in Bristol.
- Saturday, 7th of December 2019
- Led by Melanie Young
It was supposed to be gloomy and a bit chilly but the sun shone on the righteous (and all the other GoodGymmers) on Saturday morning at Eastville Park. Nearly everyone was there, physically, by 8.20, two party-goers arrived shortly after to make a full team of parkrun volunteers. And the hangovers were clearing by the start time of 9am.
400 people ran, walked, jogged or wheeled past our marshal and finish funnel teams with much high-viz cheering. Our youngest parkrunner was just 6 days old.
We all watched in amazement as the first runner left the rest of the field for dust, completing the 5K in under 16 minutes. Sadly for him, he’d left his barcode at home. Maybe as penance he ran the route again taking just 17 minutes. Wow.
When it came to packing up we were super tidy, ready for next week. Even the pop-up fitted neatly into its little bag to the amazement of a few!
