I wish you to read this email out on Friday at the club. It is an official thank you on behalf of Markeaton Parkrun to Shelton Striders for their excellent turn-out on Saturday, November 4 and for making the event the success it was, despite the weather. The volunteers, in whatever role, contributed so much to the event and it was a joy to see a local running club be so well organised and friendly to everybody taking part.
Since taking on the role of Event Director at Markeaton Parkrun and also being a member of Shelton Striders, I have been overwhelmed by the support I have had from fellow running clubs and volunteers. There is a terrific community spirit amongst everyone and it is great to be involved with everybody, whatever challenges they have in their lives, but this running club is the best I have ever been involved with anywhere and I hope to remain a member for a very long time.
Thanking you once again
