The weather took its toll on some of the local parkruns this week and possibly the festive spirit took its toll on some of the athletes with numbers taking part falling sharply.
The last parkrun day of the year did not elicit any new PBs or offer any new milestone T shirts to those athletes who performed at Albert Park, Stewart Park and Sedgefield – although Stephen Mitchinson did become the 18th Strider to join the unofficial 150 club.
Tourism was rewarded for Jeanette and Paul Appleton as they both set the Strider record at Ormeau parkrun.
Lisa and Jason Pattison chose Christmas day at Albert Park to be welcomed into the 50 club.
Now to set a 2018 PB.
