21st April 2018
This week our attendance was the highest of 2018 so far: 161 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 23 were running their first ever parkrun. Welcome to you all, and we hope you will join us again very soon! We also had a few tourists, including Joshua and Zoey who were visiting from Leeds for Joshua to run the London marathon on Sunday – hope it went well for you!
We also had our course record broken this week! Alex Bampton, from the Oxford University XC club, improved on his previous time, by lowering the course record to 16:16. Great job Alex, and we look forward to having you back soon to break 16 minutes!
Thank you to our wonderful volunteers this week, especially Hayden and Omari who were volunteering for the first time

Chris PARKINSON-BEST • Meryl WALKER • Lily WALKER • Sakina SIDIK • Barry NOLAN • Christopher SHEARWOOD • Gillian SHEARWOOD • Lana MISAN • Cara MISAN • Alisha SIDIK • Hayden PRONTO-HUSSEY • Omari PHILLIPS-GORDON • Zawer LAD
