Event 526 – 14/4/18

Good afternoon Albert parkrunners,

A fabulous parkrun yesterday brought to you by Louise and her Team of Volunteers. However, as you are aware now there was an issue with tags not being given out – Louise did her best to rectify mistakes to hopefully everybody is happy
.
However, there are a few things that I feel as Event Director I need to remind runners and volunteers of the protocol and rules of parkrun which make it easy to deliver our fab event to you week in week out.

Spitting – I said my piece yesterday on social media – if you did not see it we have a number of runners that spat as they crossed the finish line – one of which narrowly missed a volunteer. This is disgusting and if you must do this please do it on the grass area and not where people have to walk. If this happens again I will remove people from results.

Barcodes – These must be in paper form or credit or key fob size that can easily be scanned. We cannot accept barcodes from phones or if you have lost them or if you know the number. Yes we have done this in the past but parkrun HQ have now said NO BARCODE NO TIME

Volunteers – Albert parkrun cannot run without kind hearted people who give their time up to complete jobs to bring the event. Please try and join us one week to complete a job, I am sure you will enjoy it – I did offer that I am standing in for Karen on the 28 th April if anyone would like to be a shadow Run Director I am more than happy to show you the ropes – please email in or send message via social media if you can help.

Well done to our Grand National Sweep Winners they were Nicole Lackenby and Bill Fraser – Will bring prizes next week.

Next week sees our first person at Albert parkrun to complete 500 parkruns – Hopefully David Appleyard will be joining us to complete this fabulous achievement.
