MORE Achievements Celebrated At Greenock Parkrun

NINETY-eight people lined up on Saturday morning for Greenock parkrun's five-kilometre run on the Esplanade.

The dry and overcast weather conditions were ideal and 20 runners managed to achieve new personal best (PB) times for the route.

Eleven people completed the Greenock parkrun event for the first time including local firefighter Andy Adams.  Andy suffered severe spinal injuries while tackling a blaze in Greenock in August 2016. As a result, he is confined to a wheelchair and completed the course in 51:18. The parkrun team look forward to welcoming Andy back in future.

Saturday's first finisher Ross Mackenzie had a double reason to celebrate. On his second visit to Greenock he managed to lower his time to 15:42 as well as complete his 200th parkrun. Ross likes to travel around different parkruns and has run most courses in Scotland as well as events further afield.

In September 2015, Angela Magee completed her first parkrun at Greenock and on Saturday she celebrated her 100th event.

One of Greenock parkrun's volunteers also reached an impressive milestone this week. Steven Watson, one of the run directors who helped to bring parkrun to Greenock, completed his 100th volunteer stint. He is the second-most prolific volunteer, behind fellow run director Graham McGrattan who sets the course up every week. Next in line is Andy Cameron who is currently on 91 hi-viz outings.
