Welcome to Basildon parkrun Run Report 252, this week sent in by Run Director Carole!
Happy New Year to all 190 runners and walkers who turned up at Northlands park for our first parkrun of 2019. A fantastic number of people visited Basildon for the first time, hopefully those of you who made taking part in parkrun a New Year Resolution will find it is one that you do not break. Also, congratulations to our 16 parkrunners to got PBs this week, Ted Hillebrant on joining the 10 parkrun Club, and Robert Monger on joining the 50 parkrun Club!
There are a lot of unknown in the results remember it is free to sign up you only need to print off your barcode and bring along to get scanned at the end that way you will receive a time and can start working towards those milestones.
In the past year at Basildon we have had 1889 participants, 214 volunteers and 836 people registered and this week 11 more people registered, unfortunately I cannot tell you how many cups of tea were drank or bacon butties eaten in the café afterwards.
Well done to everyone who has taken part and especially to our volunteers as without our hi viz heroes parkrun cannot take place it would be great to look at the figures this time next year and see more people had given volunteering a go, don’t forget there are some roles that mean you can volunteer and run.
Our event is only as successful as our volunteers make it - please help future events by checking our roster, and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with what you’d like to do and when. You will be given all information needed to ensure you are happy in your role. We can't do this without you!
See you next week, and, as always, Don't Forget Your Barcode! #dfyb
