Thanks to this week's volunteer tail walker Paul Cook for also writing up this report on the event:
Today's High Viz Heroes
Today it's a special thank-you to the 17 people who gave up their time to stage our 341st event so you could parkrun:
Angela HODGSON-TEALL, Darren WEI, Dominic HERRINGTON, Errol ROBATHAN, Gillian CAVELL, Jenny KAY, Liam HYLANDS, Louise ROBATHAN, Madelina GORDON, Nicky BARBER, Paul COOK, Peter SANDERS, Richard STANSFIELD, Shona BARKER, Sue FRANKLIN, Tom JENNINGS and Trevor Anthony MOORE
A parkrun can only ever take place if there are enough volunteers so if you haven't volunteered before, or would like to both run and volunteer on the same day or perhaps it's been a long while since you last helped then please email email@example.com and let us know when you can help out.
Don't forget the v25 Volunteer Club rewards anyone who volunteers on 25 different occasions with a free milestone t-shirt, so why not go for this club shirt and encourage your family, friends and children to join us in fetching high viz vests one Saturday morning?
Milestones & Nearly-Milestones
Congratulations to Wilbur ROSE and Jack BARBER, both joined the Junior 10 Club today and are running at over 60% Age Grades, a fantastic achievement. Jack gets around too, he's already a tourist of five different parkruns including Malmö Ribersborg in Sweden, blimey. Wilbur's has run at Blickling and I admit having to look up where that is.
Joanna VINALL ran her 50th today and can now order her red t-shirt whilst Vicky GRIFFITHS, Natalie DAVIS, Celia WENBAN-SMITH are just one run away from their's.
No-one earned their black 100 shirt today but Bushy's parkrunner, Simon SHANKS, is on his 99th, so a big day next week.
Our favourite milestone club of all, The v25 Volunteer Club, had 24 runners today, we need more purple shirt parkrunners at Duliwch!
There were 340 parkrunners today, 56 Personal Bests, 61 First Timers to Dulwich, 64 of you forgot your barcodes and a special welcome to the 13 participants new to parkrun today, we hop you come back to enjoy our fantastic park.
Congratulations to Hannah Bowe and Archie May who finished with the highest age grades over 78% and 84% respectively in today's 29 Age Grade categories,
Nine of you ran a Personal Best as well as topping your Age Grades (https://support.parkrun.com/hc/en-us/articles/200565263-What-is-age-grading)
A shout out to the Southwark and Burgess tourists who came en masse today. It was also great to welcome back some wheelchair athletes.
