It is alway a little concern when you see a weather forecast of heavy rain, thunder and lightning and flood warnings. Little should we care about things though as it turns out to be standard Falkirk parkrun weather.
Someone may have spotted an interloper today - the was a parkrun adjudicator on site to assess us on things such as Health & Safety procedures, child welfare, dog policy and sundry other things. He will be reporting back that we have a well organised event and that people knew what they were doing. Thank you to everyone for complying with policies and doing what we ask for in the pre-run brief.
Congratulations to Gill McColgan who completed her 100th parkrun today. Thank you to Gill for what seemed like 100 packs of Haribos she brought along today.
Congratulations to Jennifer Whetton who completed her 100th parkrun today. Thank you to Jennifer for the trayloads of home baked biscuits she provided.
Thank you to everyone invovled in making today yet another special event in Callendar Park.
Don't forget, next week will be a celebration of 70 years of the NHS. Look around for more details regarding this.
