Folksworth 15

9 plucky Sawtry runners signed up for this and all completed. For those who do not know, this is a 15 mile, 2 lap course with 3 killer hills on each lap. Today was a glorious winter day so it wasn’t as tough to conquer as previous years when the weather has been pretty dire.

Our first man home was Ryan in 1.40.59. He was followed by Nib in 1.58.59, Travis 2.04.04, Gavin 2.08.35, Meg 2.14.23, Laura 2.23.09, Dan 2.26.03 with Lizzie and mum Andrea crossing the line together in 2.43.34.

Andrea was 6th in her age category, Ryan 13th in his, Nib 14th and Meg 15th in hers.

Well done folks, can’t wait till next year!

parkrun takeover

parkrun takeover

Saturday 5 January 2019 was the first parkrun of the year at Peterborough and it fell to Sawtry Walk To Run to provide all the volunteers for a takeover.

Nearly 40 of us put on our hi-vis to help make sure of the safety and enjoyment of the 699 runners who took part.

Nona was debuting as Run Director and had the job of telling the very keen runners that there would be a 10 min delay as so many people were queuing to get in the car park. Fortunately, parkrunners tend to be a friendly bunch and so there were no complaints (well none we heard about anyway!).
