We hope everyone enjoyed our Parkrun today, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen so many visitors! The weather was pretty calm which led to some fast times.
This week three hundred and sixty four (364) people ran, jogged and walked the course.In summary of this number, a staggering sixty three (63) were first timers to Burnham and Highbridge Parkrun (of whom a very impressive 19 were running their first ever Parkrun), eighty seven (87) recorded new Personal Bests, two hundred and three (203) are previous runners and eleven (11) were unknown without Barcodes. Well done everyone!

Our HiViz Team
The hero’s of the day our volunteer team. So as you are running, spare a thought to the marshals, the finish people, the scanners, the samplers, the results processors and all who before and after, put out and collect the kit.
This event is totally and utterly dependent on these dedicated people, offering their time and talents to parkrun each week. Our run requires eighteen to twenty volunteers per week.
Many of the volunteers are runners who have helped today, so if you are a regular, consider helping once in a while and allow our volunteers to have a run.
Our thanks to twenty two (22) volunteers this week in surname order: -
Brian Beale, Mark Benton, Tracey Benton, Max Boyes, Craig Brown, Katrina Bufton, Naomi Chandler, Angela Clarke, Melanie Coles, Stephen Coles, Clive Dicker, Edwin Gaines, Vincent Reginald Huxtable, Pete Manning, Patrick Murray, Roger Pease, Matt Powell, Michael Reep, Roger Tolley, Jonathan Wickens, Stephen Wilcox, Cecilia Young
To all our visitors, we hope you all enjoyed our parkrun and please visit us again, special mention must go to Miranda (apologies, I didn’t catch your surname) who came to us all the way from Toronto in Canada.
