Bury St Edmunds parkrun Event number 237 20th January 2018

A slightly damp morning didn’t stop 259 of you enjoying (hopefully!) your parkruns. I’ve been Run Directing now for almost 5 years, and every time I do it it’s a slightly different experience. Today for example I got to meet a group of deaf runners who were visiting us from Ipswich, a first for me.
Congratulations to:
Dawn Marshall who joins the 25-times volunteer club
Frances Herod, Jan Murton and Phillip Cutting who completed their 100th parkrun today
Greg Mills who completed his 200th parkrun.

Bury St Edmunds parkrun Event 235, 6th January 2018

This week's parkrun saw the muddy theme continue, but that did not stop 259 entrepid parkrunners turn out for the first parkrun at Bury in 2018. For some this would have been their third parkrun of the new year having done the doubly whammy on New Year's Day by running Thetford and then Brandon parkruns in quick succession.
 
The event was made possible by a great team of 15 volunteers - many thanks to you all.
 
There were no anniversary runs this week that we knew of; please do let us know on the day of any significant milestones so we can give you a shout out!
 
Bury parkrun team would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year and we look forward to seeing you throughout 2018.

Bury St Edmunds parkrun Event 234, 30th December 2017

212 people turned out yesterday to brave the Nowton Park mud! Despite conditions underfoot it was a beautiful morning and everyone looked happy to be there.

Joe Robson was in first place, with his mother, Odette, not far behind despite their very early start in the morning (along with Ben and Anna) to help me set-up.

We had a couple of anniversary runs to celebrate, with Jacky Stevens completing her 50th parkrun as well as Jasmine Raja who had completed her 100th the previous week without realising! Then of course Kelvin Johnson decided to recognise his 25th volunteer role by running his 170th parkrun; this of course means he has hardly missed a week since the Bury parkrun started.

We are not hosting a parkrun at Nowton on New Year's Day, but please look on the parkrun website which lists those events that are.

Happy New Year to you all and we look forward to seeing you in 2018!
