Two of our tourists this week had a special reason for running this week:
Robert Mitchell and Ethan Lee ran parkrun this week in honour of Chris Gregory. Chris sadly lost the battle against his brain tumour three weeks ago and last Saturday (10th) was the day that his family and friends said goodbye at Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium. He loved to be outdoors so it was fitting that they ran parkrun in his honour. Graves parkrun offer their condolences to Chris’ family and friends. Thank you for sharing your story Robert.
As ever, a massive thanks to the volunteers this week – remember, without them, there can be no parkrun. Vounteers were a little hard to gather again this week: please give back to your parkrun once in a while – we promise you’ll enjoy it!

|**Graves first timer|
Lost Wedding ring! A Wedding ring was lost near the ‘coatbush’ last Saturday. Please can people check anything they had with them that day just in case.
We are entering the winter months and due to the high position of Graves, we do occasionally have to cancel. Please keep your eye on our facebook page for updates as the weather gets colder, icier and inevitably snowier!!
One dog on a short hand held lead only please. No dogs connected to runners by a waistband. Thank you.
Apologies, I forgot to take photos this week! Catherine
