Once again, we had a great turnout as 418 runners, joggers and walkers joined us for their Saturday morning parkrun fix. Making sure everything went smoothly, 22 volunteers did a fantastic job and were on hand to cover the various volunteering roles. Thanks to the Phillipson family who took care of all things barcode related.
Unfortunately, the person in 44th position, didn't scan and went home with their small plastic finish token. If this was you, no worries that you didn't scan, but can we please have our finish token back? Every week, we put up signs, give out reminders and do what we can to ensure that all finish tokens are returned. Please, please don't take then home with you!
This week, the Run Director reminded everyone that the National Trust have made a few changes to the parking in Clumber, and have requested that you only park in the main car park near the visitor facilities or on the event field. There is limited parking behind Central Bark, but this fills up quickly. Please don't park on any verges around the cricket field or along the entrance to the Central Bark car park. These measures have been put in place to aid the Trust's ongoing conservation work. We were made aware that queues developed at the entrance gate this week. With so many people entering Clumber at the same time, this is inevitable, so please give yourself extra time to arrive, park and attend the 8.55 a.m. briefing.
As usual, there were some milestones and birthdays today. Visitors Pip ROBERSON and Daniel BURNS joined us, along with their friends to celebrate their 50th birthdays. Running is clearly much more fun than partying...or perhaps they did both? Joining the 10 Club were Evelyn OLDALE, Jacob WILKINSON, Kian BUTLER and Kula DYSON. New Members to the 100 Club were Neil RUSHBY and Julie CARROLL. Julie very kindly donated a prize to the 100th person to cross the finish line. Here she is, celebrating with The Clumber Park Runners.
See you all next time on the best day of the week....parkrun day! #DFYB
