A slightly drizzly, damp day for this weeks parkrun but that didn't dampen the spirits of 233 people who ran, jogged and walked the course this week.
We were joined by 29 first timers and 64 of you recorded new Personal Bests.... WOW! Is that thanks to the army of volunteers from Harlow Running Club pacing this week I wonder - I think it most certainly helped.
Was lovely to hear the PB triangle being rung so much this week.
Talking of Harlow Running Club - they supplied a majority of our 37 volunteers this weekend - without volunteers, parkrun does not happen so a massive thank you to all of you.

Wasn't it lovely to see Roy running only his 12th ever parkrun and his 10th at Harlow. He is always there cheering us on at Roys Corner and I am really pleased to see so many of you giving him some shouts of encouragement this week.
The roster for the next few weeks is looking rather bare so please do consider helping out, especially if you haven't done so before. Please let us know if you can help email@example.com and we will add you to the roster.
Congratulations to Derek Jenner on joining the 50 club
If you know you are running your 10th (for juniors only), 50th, 100th, 250th parkrun, or even your 25th volunteering stint, please do let us know so we can give you the shout out you deserve. Providing cake to celebrate is not compulsory but very nice!
The complete results for this event can be found here
No new age category records this week but if you want to know what they are, they can be accessed here
A massive thanks again to all who sponsored my mum for Braving the Shave at parkrun last week - she is still collecting money but once she has collected everything promised, she will have raised in excess of £600.
I do believe that is it for this week, so lets get a nice full roster for Saturday so we can do it allllll again
See ya there.
Help your parkrun
You can donate to Harlow parkrun through our "About Us" page. The donation will go to your "home run" and you can check this through your profile's update page.
Are you a frequent parkrunner, or does your barcode regularly fail to scan or you're having problems with your printer? You should consider getting some ERS Barcodes. Make our scanners lives easier and be the envy of all of your parkrunner chums!
Don't forget "NO BARCODE NO TIME" so #DFYB
Please also remember, under 11's must run "accompanied by an appropriate adult" at all times during the parkrun (not minutes apart) - no adult, no time, no exceptions!
