a big welcome to our new Run Director, Mark Broadley who delivered his first parkrun today.
This is Mark delivering the first timer briefing before moving onto the main briefing. He did say it's rather nerve racking standing in front of 300+ people talking, but I'm sure he'll get used to it.
Our new speed limit signs (2) were deployed this week, one just inside the park gates and the other halfway down the drive. Even still I had to slow down one driver who was bombing it along the driveway. Please allow time to get to the parkrun in plenty of time and observe the 5MPH speed limit. The National Trust do comment quite frequently on the speed some parkrunners get upto along the drive.
We also deployed our new "No Barcode, No Time, No Exception" signs. If you have a problem remembering your barcode why not buy a set from
You can buy a set of three barcode tokens for £4.26, place one on your keyring, thread one on your trainers and keep one in your cars glove box, then you'll never be without one. The scanner may ask you to lift your leg if you do have one on your trainer.
You can add ICE details and any medication you take or medical condition.
Note: We will only accept 1.) Printed Barcodes 2.) Barcode Tokens and 3.) Barcode wrist bands. We are not allowed to scan/write down barcodes from mobile phones, watches etc, pease don't ask.
With the change of sponsorship for parkrun, we end up with vests that we cannot use anymore. Well thanks to Claire Fritz we've manage to recycle some of ours into dedicated hi-viz covers for the two wooden gate posts along the drive. Thanks you very much Claire. I believe she has another idea to use up a few more.
Hope you all have a fantastic week and see you next Saturday, lets keep the attendance above 300, make it the norm!
