Saturday got off to a frosty start but that didn’t deter 58 people from running and walking the latest Thurso parkrun.

First male was regular visitor Matthew Sutherland, who crossed the finish in a time of 17 minutes and five seconds. First female was Carly Erridge in 25.41 and first junior male was Conor Macgruer in 27.38.

There were personal bests for Alex Vines, Marie Cuthbert, Sarah Macintosh, Stephen Bremner, Julie Murray, Leah Hibbert, Andrew Cuthbert and Mel Hayes.

Peter Dobbie reached his 50th parkrun milestone, with all 50 completed at Thurso.

On Saturday, Thurso parkrun was supported by 17 volunteers. Colleen Wotherspoon reached her 50th volunteering milestone and Mirissa Efemey reached her 10th.

Thurso parkrun event director Donna Stewart said: "Thurso parkrun would not happen without the volunteers and it is great to celebrate our volunteers' milestones."

This week Thurso parkrun organised a collection of food for Caithness Foodbank and there was a great response with 98kg of food being donated. "We are delighted to support those in our community who are in need of some extra support," Donna added.

This coming Saturday sees the last Thurso parkrun of the year. The first parkrun of 2022 will be on New Year's Day, starting at 9.30am.
