Saturday 29 December 2018 – Wythenshawe parkrun number 371


“Is nobody else taking this seriously?” quipped Paul, displaying his brand new (lack of) hair style!

Meanwhile, Jenn perched on the ‘Run Director’s Bollard’ to deliver the usual briefing to today’s 236 participants.


Waiting at the finish line, stalwart volunteers Norma and Jane. The event couldn’t run without people like these to scan barcodes and carry out a number of other duties. (I won’t divulge their nickname!)


Here’s an unusual snap, as I’m normally the one with the camera. Thanks go to another volunteer, Jan, for this picture taken at the end of the first lap. Despite the impression of motion, this is the point at which I discover that I’ve gone too fast. Today was no exception; most of those pictured behind me had passed me by the time I got to this point, about 20 metres from the finish, on the second lap.


Today’s full results are here, but it was primarily a social occasion, with a good chat with some regulars in the café afterwards.

Both Ottawa Park Runs cancelled for the third week in a row due to ice.
Ken should have his 50 by now. He did a freedom run with two Aussies this morning. Marginal conditions in the park.

Warm and fairly dry here. Good running conditions. We will try to bring them with us.
