6th Birthday Run Report by Lauren Hevey

Event number 315 on the 14th of July, 2018
Today was a very sunny day so we welcomed 344 participants. We had visitors from Worcester Pitchfork, Dorset, Coventry and Cannon Hill – which included me and my mom!
IMG_5469At Arrow Valley parkrun we had 30 volunteers, 22 first timers and 43 PBs. IMG_5471Also it was our 6th birthday so what do we sing.... Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to Arrow Valley Parkrun, Happy birthday to you! Hip, hip, hooray.... Hip, hip, hooray!  So in true Arrow Valley style the special event was run in reverse – what fun and then there was Cake & refreshments – thank you to everyone who donated yummy goodies.
IMG_5474Rachel also issued a plea on behalf of Bromsgrove Junior parkrun that have again had to cancel due to lack of volunteers – please do consider giving up an hour on your Sunday to help.
