Despite wild and windy weather 186 runners and 13 volunteers made it to our event on Saturday 16 March.
We were joined by Malcolm who is 78 years young and is preparing for the London Marathon where he is running for Team Dementia Revolution to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer's Research UK. As a rule, we don't plug charity runners, but Alzheimer's Research UK and parkrun are partnered ( see this link - https://www.alzheimersresearchuk.org/support-us/fundraise/parkrun/ ). Malcolm is inspiring - he was the oldest person to join the 100 Marathon Club at 74 and is living with dementia. Three cheers for Malcolm!
In other news, our parkrunners Eva Tyler-Jones and Matthew Brunnock ran in the New Balance English Schools XC Nationals on Saturday in Leeds. We are so very proud! Congratulations!
The teams of volunteers who help to make our event possible each week are a super bunch. If you would like to join them, please get in touch to let us know a Saturday that would suit your schedule. Full training given and it's fun. Email - email@example.com , leave a comment on our Facebook page or speak to the Run Director in blue hi-viz any Saturday at our event.

Entry to this list is exceptional this week due to the very high winds! Looks like the ladies take the prizes!
I've already checked the weather for next Saturday and while it could change between now and then, it is looking promising. I hope we'll see you then!
