Whoo hoo another super spooky stray fair parkrun ! We do love is when we manage to get a route through the middle of the fairground.
A huge thanks goes out as always to this weeks volunteers who were amazing as ever. Thanks guys.
Also a little apology to Stuart HATFIELD I missed you in the run briefing ( i think it was the singing that made me forget, that or the jet lag) Anyway congratulations on your 100th parkrun this week. Congrats too to Gary YOUNG on clocking up his 50th and Cameron DALZELL who ran his 10th run well done all of you.
Finally we give a huge congratulations to Hudson and Brody who both ran their 50th and final parkruns this week. Both have run every one of their 50 parkrun's with a human on a short lead and they have done a fabulous job of keeping their humans under control as well, well done boys. Unfortunately 5k is just too much for them both now so we wish them both a long and happy retirement.
That's it from me,
See you soon.
Just a few reminders....
In Case of Emergency - Please double check that your emergency contact details are complete and up to date on your parkrun profile. You'll find a link to your profile on your weekly results email and newsletters or via this How can I access my profile / account? link. It only takes a few moments, put could really help us to help you if and when you most need it.
Barcodes - Is your printed barcode looking tired or not scanning easily? There are a range of tough and durable plastic parkrun barcode ID tags and parkrun wristbands available via http://www.parkrun-barcode.org.uk/ These are the only UK authorised and professionally printed tags and feature the parkrun branding and logo, your athlete details and can also be personalised with your ICE (In Case of Emergency) telephone number and additional information including specific medical details. They come in a range of options and can be attached to a key ring, laces, and running vest zip or worn on a lanyard.
Volunteering - We do ask that each of you, if possible, volunteer 3 times over the year. It is thanks to our great volunteer teams that parkruns around the world continue to happen every Saturday. Harrogate is no exception and without your kindness we would not be able to put on this wonderful free event. If you would like to help out please visit http://www.parkrun.org.uk/harrogate/volunteer/ for more information or talk to anyone in a yellow vest on parkrun day and then email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved. If you still want to run don't let that put you off we have lots of jobs where you can still run !
