Week 33

On a breezy mid-summer's Saturday with some pleasant sunshine, a stonking 35 Sinfin members turned out for parkrun!

And there was some fairly major tourism to be had today, with Kevin P travelling all the way to Singapore to take on the East Coast Park parkrun finishing in an excellent 4th place and also meeting someone from Derby whilst he was at it! Continuing on the "East" parkrun theme but slightly closer to home in Wolverhampton, Samuel B and Tomas H made their first visits to East Park parkrun, with Tomas 1st in his age category and Sam finishing the run in 2nd place.

Nicky P was in Edinburgh debuting at Holyrood parkrun, and in Wales at Pont y Bala parkrun, Fiona F made her first visit finishing 1st in her age category. Up in Keswick in the Lake District Dennis C and Lorna C visited for the first time and over in the north-east, Julie M was at Jubilee parkrun near Sunderland coming 1st in her age category. On the outskirts of Birmingham Brendan D got his slightly elusive "O" at Oaklands parkrun and was 1st in his age category on his first visit and Chris S made the trip to Graves parkrun in Sheffield for his debut there.

There was some more local tourism around the Derby area with Dan W debuting and 1st in his age category at Beacon Hill, Chris B and Connah B debuted at Rushcliffe, and Robert L returned to Abbey Park parkrun in Leicester for a course PB.

At Long Eaton Barry B managed 1st in his age category, and back in Derby at Markeaton Daisy M made her debut, and Graham H was 1st in his age category.

Finally, at Alvaston Lucy T took the reigns as Run Director, looking after fellow volunteers, David L, Deanna S, Michael T and Richard B - thank you everyone for your amazing contributions! On the running front Brian W, Danielle S, Deanna S, and Maria G were all first in their age categories!

Well done everyone on a very busy parkrun Saturday! 💚💜
