I want to start this week’s run report by thanking all those people who came forward to volunteer this week. On Friday afternoon we were still 6 volunteers short. Although we had a positive response to our social media call out for more help, it makes everything much less stressful for the core-team, (in particular the volunteer co-ordinator) if they do not have to drum up support on a Friday afternoon. Remember they are also volunteers with jobs and a family life. The rota for the next few weeks is looking very gappy – please come forward if you can help. If you haven’t got round to helping before, doing so over the next few weeks will make a real difference. This time of year always impacts on volunteer numbers as those who regularly help go on summer holidays. Message us directly email@example.com or comment on the Facebook page if you can help.

On to run 381; it was a relatively quite one for Cambridge this week with a mere 502 people running, jogging and walking their way around the course. We had 59 first times and a 60 people bagged themselves a PB.
Regular Cambridge parkrunner, Chris DARLING was first over the line in 16:27. An unknown runner was second (don’t forget your barcode!) and Francisco PEREZ CUTINO was third over the line in 16:54. Jean HOBDAY was first over the line for the woman in a time of 19:49. Sophie DARLING, was hot on her heals in a time of 19:51 and Geraldine LARHAM cross the line 3rd in 20:48.
Joanne MOORES, was the athlete who cross the line in position 381, in a time of 32:00. Joanne completed her first parkrun in 2011 and was either really bad at remembering her barcode or had a bit of a gap until she ran her second in April this year Since April Joanne has been regularly coming to parkrun and completed her 10th run this week – congratulations.
Lots of people joined milestone clubs this week. Matthew BAKER, completed his 10th run. Chris EMERY, Frederick CHEUNG and Leon ZAKRZEWSKI ran their 50th. While Alex HOWARD, Amy COPE and Sarah JONES joined the 100 club. Chris EMERY also bagged himself a new PB completing the course in a time of 25:34. Well done to all of you. Regular Cambridge parkrunner Tim PHIPPS ran his 101 parkun this week, completing his 100th at Amager Strandpark parkrun in Denmark last week and managing to be the first finisher at the same time!
Aesthetically pleasing times were gained by; Brian JONES 21:21 (New PB), Jen HARE 24:42, Daisy LLEWELLYN 28:28, Mary HOLMES 30:03, Greg VEIT 30:03 (New PB), Rupert ELLISON 31:31, Katie SMITH 35:35 and Caroline Ann BARHAM 37:37.
Right that’s it from me this week – please remember to help us over the next few weeks if you can
