Riverside parkrun for Pedro

Much pouring out of heartfelt tributes to our friend Ped this week who sadly died this week. We are inviting all north east runners to Riverside parkrun on Saturday for a lap of honour in Ped’s name. Please come wearing your 50 T shirt if you have one or your running club vest if you have one. Ped has reached 93 parkruns and 49 at Riverside. Saturday WILL BE his 50th with us. After consulting with his family , our small tribute and celebration on Saturday will go like this.

We invite you as a local runner , a parkrunner of many runs or your very first time to come down to Riverside park for the 9am start. You do not need to have known Gerard Murray (Ped) to be welcome on Saturday to the celebration of his life.

We will have a minute applause before we set off for Ped – which would embarrass him.

We will run parkrun – in your 50th T shirt, in your local running club vest , in any T shirt you want!

When the last parkrun participant has competed parkrun on Saturday circa 9:45 we will gather near the cafe and do a single lap of honour at Ped pace – sharing happy stories and a laugh , just as he would want us to, as a celebration of a special person lost to us, thus completing his 50th Riverside parkrun.

Please pass this on to running friends in the North East

Any messages for his family can be left at the bottom of the post shown here.
