He took the opportunity to run through some parkrun reminders about funnel ducking and token etiquette, pointing out that is aimed at getting you as accurate a result as we can and as quickly as possible. Despite this, we still had 14 unknowns and a finish token go missing (it has since been tracked down) this week.

We also had a quick pause in proceedings to welcome Iris Elsie to the Graves parkrun family and send a congratulations video to RD Cat.
