3 Month Streak

The Autumn Blickling half should have taken place in October but due to flooding was deferred until today! Wow the weather was perfect today thank goodness & almost 800 runners were excited to. I was on Bib allocation & was surprised how many runners still found their original bib allocation but for those lost it’s easy to allocate a new one. After the start I joined Shelley unloading bags from the van into Town Hall for collection after the race, not an easy job putting bags in number order! Then it was all hands on deck laying out water cups, medals & donuts & cookies. I then handed out medals & was lucky enough to get the 1st runner through. I really enjoyed a new volunteer role at the start then seeing finishers in. So much goes on to make the finish run smoothly it was good to see, and as a runner very nearly last through the finish, always much appreciated . out on the course today Katy & Bill were encouraging every participant along their weary way as only a Goodgymer can!

It goes to show that runners really don't care what the weather or conditions are like. GoodGym Norwich did a Catton parkrun takeover, so luckily we didn't have to run it ourselves but a few hundred people did run/walk through mud and puddles to complete their 5km.
I don't think many of them would have returned home mud free.
Well done to all the GG volunteers who took on several of the volunteering roles today. Next week we're at Sloughbottom parkrun for a takeover there.
