Great weather for our 98 parkrunners this morning. All this thought of free chocolate must have done something right as we had 42 PB's and 20 first timers this week. Congrats again to all those who picked up a golden ticket!
As always, the event wouldn't happen if not for the runners who volunteer each week. If you'd like to get involved, just go to the volunteer tab in this site.

Volunteers make our parkruns possible and without them no parkrun can take place. So please get in touch at email@example.com and help us make sure we can be here every week. Remember, in many volunteer roles you can still run and if you can’t run you can always volunteer.
