Greenock parkrun, event number 425, December 9

IN wet and windy weather 70 people ran, jogged or walked the course, of whom four were Greenock first timers, including Nicola Tarrant, who was taking part in her 628th parkrun. Nicola was joined by Neil McDonough from Striders of Croyden AC, who completed his 401st parkrun.

Four runners recorded new PBs, and representatives of eight different clubs took part.

There were milestones too, with Patrick McCann completing his 25th parkrun and father and son, Kenny and Scott Lever completing their 50th parkruns together

All at Greenock parkrun send their congratulations to run director Stephen Hanley and his wife Jennifer on the birth of their baby boy, Ben.
