Wow! Wow! Wow! Who knew that a Terry's chocolate orange had so much power? Here at the Beeston parkrun office, we're amazed and delighted that 438 parkrunners came down to Weirfields this morning, smashing our previous highest attendance record, to help celebrate our 200th parkrun.
And so it would seem that you were all fans of our spot prizes to celebrate our 200th run. Well done to the following runners who claimed a prize:
#320 Rachel Carrington
Apologies (but a special mention) to Keith Davies #420 who didn't get a chocolate oranage. We weren't expecting to reach over 400 runners... next time!

Congratulations to Chris and special thanks to our volunteers today (that's Claire ABBOTT, Trina BEAUMONT, Chris BEXTON, Christopher BIRLEY, Peter FOWLES, Alison HOGG, Bethan HOGG, Anna HUGHES, Briony JACKSON, Evgeniya MIHAYLOVA, Dave NETTLETON, John ODONNELL, Keith PEPPER, Phillip REID, Hilary ROODBARAKY, Tony RUSHTON, Olivia THOMAS-NEHER, Richard UPWARD, Megan WOODS). Without the regular support of all our volunteers for the past 200 Saturdays, Beeston parkrun wouldn't easily happen.
So that's it folks, 200th run report completed. Full results for all finishers can be found online here: http://www.parkrun.org.uk/beeston/results/latestresults.
Hope you enjoyed this Saturday morning as much as I did. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
