A strange morning for our parkrun number 156. A very autumnal look but so warm we could have been forgiven if we thought it was still summer! I was expecting it to be busier as Belton House wasn’t on, but it would seem there were also a lot of people partaking in the Gruesome Twosome race on Saturday. So, we had 130 finishers this week.
One of which was Ian Birchall, who ran his 50th parkrun but didn’t own up to it when I asked who might be completing a milestone. However, we did have cakes and chocolates. The Grandma was our Tailwalker and was completing her 25th volunteer and Kerry McCrainor was celebrating her ………th birthday! Talking of milestones, there may be a couple of milestones to celebrate in the coming weeks, you will have to be at Boston parkrun to find out!!
A massive thank you to all the volunteers, as always, we wouldn’t be able to host the event without you! If you would like to volunteer in the future, there are many ways to let us know. You can Facebook message us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or approach the Volunteer Co-ordinator on a Saturday at parkrun.
A quick reminder of one of the few parkrun rules. Under 11s must be within arms length of their responsible adult. If the child is able to run faster than its adult then another responsible adult, known to the child, must be nominated to run with the child. If any Marshals think that this rule is not being adhered to they will stop the child from participating and the Results Processor also has the right to remove that child from the results.
Our birthday run is fast approaching, hopefully you have all sorted out your fancy dress for the event. Saturday 27th October, we celebrate our 3rd birthday, as in previous years there will be much going on, it should be a great day.
Another date for your diary is the 10th November. If you have seen our Facebook post you might have had a hint of the celebrity who is joining us for that run, prior to his big event on the 16th November.
Andy W has a few gaps in the volunteer roster for next week, it would be great to get them filled early for him. Until next time, Richard E.
