Good evening parkrunners
Well someone did a rain dance.... Where's the sunshine gone? I'm sure we're all relieved to be sleeping better now that the temperature has fallen dramatically, I guess the national grid has a chance to recover from the electrical demand to power all our fans!!!!
After a few wonderful sunny days away in Norfolk I returned to find the volunteer roster looking very gappy - after a pleading email the response was incredible. My roster was filling up and was complete by early evening, the celebratory glass (or 3) of Rose went down very well.
Thank you so much for stepping up and saving saturday morning - you're all wonderful. Please consider volunteering, if we all give our time every so often we can continue to enjoy parkrun, it only happens IF we have enough volunteers EVERY week.

Onto the run.....
This week 270 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 69 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 13 different clubs took part.
Our first male finisher was Michael Waddington in an incredible 16:43 which is a new pb for him. Great run Michael!!
Our first lady was Jo Arscott who finished in 22:16 and considering she was supposed to be taking it easy is an amazing time. Jo then donned her volunteer hat and stepped up to scan barcodes.
Yesterdays full results and a complete event history can be found on the Castle Park parkrun Results Page.
I think the heat is set to return (yipee) as this week goes on, so enjoy your duvets for now.
I'm handing over the Blue & White vest to Tory for the coming week. I'm sure she'd welcome any request to volunteer with open arms. In the meantime enjoy the rest of your sunday, have a fab week, and I'll see you all in the crowd listening to the run briefing next weekend.
Thanks again your continued encouragement and support
