It was truly heart-warming to be one of 111 parkrunners that participated at Wells Estate last Saturday. It was our 88th event, each event becoming more treasured than the one before. The weather was perfect and so were the smiles. Do yourself a favour and browse our latest photos on our facebook page to see for yourself.
"Old" friends meet up every week to have a quick chit-chat about the week past and the one ahead. Parkrun continues to grow with 9 "new" bodies that participated for the first time today. We "borrowed" 7 visitors from other parkruns who visited from East London and our local sister-parkruns - Hobie Beach and Sardinia Bay.
Arriving "blue" at parkrun is something that changes in the blink of an eye when we do the new elbo-greet with the accompanying hip-but. One can only giggle at the ingenuity of our runners! This is the start to a brand new culture at parkrun...no "buts" about it!
12 volunteers ensured yet another Wells Estate parkrun started and ended this week without a hiccup. We are grateful for your selfless service.
Our legendary Route C (pathway only) graciously allowed 31 runners to improve on their personal best run time. Some were able to walk faster, whilst others ran faster. Competition? No, parkrun is not into that type of pressure. You compete with you alone. If you hit a PB this week, savour the moment, smile, jump with joy, but know that you have now lifted that bar all by yourself. Congratulations!
We will update you on this page regarding future events. Keep watching.
Thanks for your continued support.
