After a cancellation last parkrunday we were back on this week and on a special day too.
This Saturday was the day of the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
A huge majority of the runners got the memo (facebook posting) about this weeks colour theme and looked fabulous displaying red, white and blue as they ran round The Ridings.
Thanks to all of the following people who gave up their time and a chance to run to volunteer this week and help me put on the event:
Kevan ALLINGTON, Bob BELL, Eric BRYANT, Julie BRYANT, Nigel CHAPMAN, Ian CRABBE, Ellen DEVINE, Karen DORE, John FRANCKSEN, Chris HOPKIN, Chris LOVELL, Iain MACFARLANE, Betty MANSER, Stuart MANSER, Tammy MEDD, Charlotte MITCHELL, Jim OVENS, Isobel PALMER, Nick PHILLIPS, Emilie POWNER, Bill SHACKCLOTH, Nigel TRICKEY, Sally TRICKEY, Nicki WADE, Malcolm Kevin WHITE, Stuart WILKIE, Elizabeth WILKIE, Jan YOUNG
After my mother (check out those socks!) did an amazing job on the first timers brief it was over to me on the main brief.
Thank you to everyone for the hush and patience during this. We know a lot of you already know most of the contents of this but for first timers this is their first experience at a parkrun and will want to listen to what is being said and of course someone somewhere standing out there listening to us may be getting a name check if they are on a certain milestone or visiting us from another parkrun... (like Claire) my friend from Longrun Meadow who was picking up a parkrun C this week on her way to completing her chosen word.
If you have forgotten already about my shameless plug about the Grand Union Canal 145 mile Race this Saturday and how I'm hoping to raise a bit of sponsorship money from it for the Running Down Dementia challenge then you can check out my profile page here !
Congratulations to Sarah Presley who this week finished her 50th parkrun and Tom Morgan in 21st place who ran his 100th parkrun.
Thanks to Nicki Wade and Mel Warren for providing this weeks photographs. All of Which can be found on our Flickr page.
This week your RD is Nick, looking at the current state of the roster, I think he would really appreciate a bit more help... If you can volunteer this week? please get in touch!
Thanks for dropping by and reading this..
I'll see most of you on the 9th June back at the Ridings, Until then...
Happy parkrunning #DFYB
