Parkrun Report / Saturday 8th September

Well you can tell summer is over as this week as we had a bumper turnout of 313 parkrunners, which included a large contingent from the local RAF regiment in addition to 45 first timers!  The weather on Saturday was decidedly autumnal, bringing with it a much lower temperature than experienced over the summer; no doubt a welcome relief to all.

George Wickers completed his 100th parkrun this week, joining that exclusive 100 club. This week also saw the introduction of a new Run Director at Bury. Zachary Strickland has been a regular volunteer over the past months and has agreed to become the sixth member of the RD team, which is fantastic news. So we are very fortunate to have such a strong RD team but sometimes struggle to fill volunteer roles, so please do look out for volunteer appeals and help when you can.

The event was made possible by 18 volunteers:

Maureen MCCARTHY • Martin LITTLE • Claire HOBLYN • Monica BOSWORTH • Martin ALLUM • Jasmin RAJA • Matthew BULLOCK • Kirsty WEAVERS • Sharon PLACE • Jonathan GORMAN • Bill HILL • Asia DAVIES • Rachel MARSH • Rachel TERRY • Zachary STRICKLAND • Daniel COOK • Imogen BLACK • Samuel WEBBER
