Event volunteers mark the occasion

IT was a record-breaking weekend at Greenock parkrun as the weekly five-kilometre event was held for the 250th time.

A new attendance record of 210 was set for the Esplanade course and the highest number of time improvements was recorded — 48 people earned personal bests (PBs).

Some impressive times were recorded with more than 20 runners finishing in under 20 minutes.

There were two big milestones with Alex Paterson and Marianne McKay both completing their 100th parkruns.

Marianne’s daughters also hit milestones — Aimee McEleny completed her 50th parkrun and Erin achieved her 25th volunteer role.

Aimee and Erin were also among a large number of juniors celebrating PBs, the others being Dylan Crawford, David Docherty, Ava Beaton, Lyall Black, Iris Paterson, Fraser McLaughlan, Calum Brennan, Oscar Boyce, Ronan Erskine, David Brennan and Ava McLaughlan.

Nearly 3,000 people have completed Greenock parkrun since it was established in May 2014.
