A rather cold and dreary January morning was no doubt brightened for the 401 runners and 24 volunteers (plus numerous supporters) that made it down to Great Hollands Rec for the 150th running of Bracknell parkrun! No cake to mark the occasion, but there is always hope for next week. There were plenty of winning smiles nonetheless.
John Gunn ran his 100th parkrun today! We didn't get a photo of him with our '100' sign. Make sure you flag down the photographer next week John, and very well done!
We had tourists joining us today from Sheffield and Bushy. Furthest travelled though was a Canadian parkrunner! We hope you all enjoyed the course!
Now we hope to never need to use your 'In Case of Emergency' or 'ICE' information, but as was mentioned during our briefing today, it is so important to make sure it is on your barcode or about your person when you're running. You can update it in your parkrun profile and reprint, or even just write it on the back of a paper barcode. If you fancy getting yourself one of the plastic barcodes or wristbands, you can add it to those too. There is even space for some medical information. You can purchase a barcode from the shop here.
We will return next Saturday at our usual time of 9am. See you there?
