Run Report

Bury St Edmunds parkrun
Event number 256
7th July 2018

It was another hot and sunny morning for Parkrun today. I certainly think it was easier and cooler being Run Director today, and I admire all of you who ran in the heat, especially those of you who recorded personal bests.

Special thanks to some of the volunteers who had to change roles at the last minute today, due to a couple of people having to drop out at short notice. We couldn’t manage to put on parkrun without our volunteers, so please take a look at the future roster and if you are able to fill in any gaps over the next few weeks, do get in touch.

Hope to see you all again next week.

Here follows the official parkrun report:

This week 215 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 35 were first timers and 27 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 23 different clubs took part.

Bury St Edmunds parkrun Event 253, 2nd June 2018

Wasn't it nice to be back running in Nowton Park on Saturday! This week 231 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 30 were first timers and 35 recorded new Personal Bests.

Don't forget, we now have yet another two week break, with our next run on 23rd June and then on 30th it will be our 5th Anniversary (and if all goes to plan, my 100th run!) We will then be running every week through the summer months.

This week, we marked National Volunteer Week - https://volunteersweek.org with quite a few of us wearing the fabulous 25 volunteering occassions purple teeshirt - see updated Facebook cover photo.

The event was made possible by 10 volunteers:

Linda Jane HANDCOCK • Stephen PRETTY • Claire HOBLYN • Jenny MORGAN • Brice EASDOWN • Asia DAVIES • Philip BROWN • Zachary STRICKLAND • Alastair YOUNG • Imogen BLACK

For our next run on 23rd, Susan Dunne takes over as RD. We have a good few volunteers on the roster already - but we do need two timekeepers, someone to help sort the tokens and some marshals. If you would like to help (and work toward that fabulous imperial purple teeshirt) contact us at burystedmundshelpers@parkrun.com

This week we welcomed the following runners into our parkrun teeshirt clubs:

10 Club (Juniors): Molly Howell

50 Club: Paul Dockerill (managing a new PB in all the excitement!) and Tim Lodge

100 Club: Heidi Berry

Well done to you all.

Steve
