Bushy parkrun – 4th Feb 2012

As I was planning on a long run on Sunday (alas snow is forecast) I decided not to do my usual 5k parkrun, but instead to run there and back (6 miles total) and help out with the finishing funnel.

It was a beautiful but chilly morning and when I got there people were putting out benches loaded with T Shirts and several camera crews were wandering about as it seems we had 2 Olympians coming down to start the run, Edwin Moses and Mark Spitz.

Fortunately we only had around 750 runners but it gave us breathing room to apply some fine tuning to the double funnel to improve throughput which worked pretty well.

I spotted Nell McAndrew crossing the line which improved my morning immensely!

Fingers crossed the snow isn’t too deep tomorrow.
