This week we had quite a few first time volunteers and everyone did a sterling job. The only delay in processing the results was because we had to wait for windows updates!

Marie Summerly unfortunately tripped up near the lake. We hope your ankle is getting better? Don't forget to keep your feet elevated.. I heard drinking wine or prosecco whilst laying on a sun lounger is a good way to recover!!

Please remember the course has it's lumps, bumps and stumps and at this time of year frisky squirrels!

The best stat of all today is that we had 24 volunteers...

Not a task for the numerically challenged our token sorters are hard at work

made so much harder when tokens are missing. Whoever took token 101 will be put into a room. We ask very little of our runners but handing back the token isn't much to ask? 340 runners managed it today!

And here are some stat-like things:

parkrun 244 April 7th

According to Lyndon "it never rains on a Saturday".  In recent weeks you could be forgiven for thinking that he'd lost his touch.  However, despite a less than favourable forecast, it stayed dry and 311 runners & walkers and 19 volunteers joined us for 'wear a hat day'.  Was Lyndon the only one who read the memo?

Oh it looks like the volunteers remembered......

Volunteers

....and thankfully a few others did too.

The Queen turned out today to help the Harris Family celebrate Olive's 50th parkrun - it's great to see the juniors loving their Saturday morning parkrun.

Also celebrating today were Alison Ottaway running her 50th parkrun and Marcus Adams running his 200th. Jj, one of our Duke of Edinburgh volunteers ran his first run today as part of his D of E physical activity - who said this D of E stuff was easy?. Also celebrating their running achievements were ladies from Worksop Runners who graduated from their Couch to 5k programme this morning - great stuff and welcome to parkrun.

The runners finishing in positions 203 and 204 forgot to hand their tokens in today. If that was you, please can you drop us an email so we can arrange to get them back ready for next week?  Don't forget, the Garden Tea House which is adjacent to our start, has a lovely outdoor seating area for you to enjoy your post parkrun refreshments if the weather is warm enough (dogs allowed in this area).

Parking at Clumber Park

PARKING. Big thank you for using in the Main Car Park last week, please keeping parking there till further notice.

 

As part of our commitment to care and look after the park avoid parking on wet soggy grassed areas, they just get chewed up.

I've never known it wetter.... keep those trail shoes handy too.

DFYB.

parkrun 243 March 31st

The rain stopped on cue for our Easter parkrun but the course may have seemed more suited to an Aquathon.  With the promise of Easter eggs, very kindly donated by Martin, there was no shortage of runners today.

The Easter Bunnies hopped their way around the rather sodden course...

.. while it looks like Katherine was demanding payment for her barcode scanning services.

These guys are looking pleased with themselves, was it because they knew the results would be processed without any issues or had they taken a bung from Katherine to look the other way?

It's think of a caption contest time...first prize a volunteering slot at next weeks parkrun just email clumberparkhelpers@parkrun.com

Here are the tumble dried results:
