What a scorcher of a week! and how nice to finally have some warm sunny weather to run in. By Wednesday it was getting a bit too toasty though : D
It was great to be able to use the normal finish area again after weeks of it being too wet and slippy.
The good weather seemed to encourage a few more folk to get out of bed and join us this week too as we had a good size field of 188 participants all raring to go after the pre run briefing.
We welcomed 33 first timers including visitors from Salisbury, Great Yarmouth, Cleethorpes,Pontefract, Pocklington, Alexandra Palace and Bridlington phew! hope you all had a great run with us and we'd love to see you back soon.
The event was made possible this week by 15 volunteers to whom we are very grateful - thank you : Alex MCBIRNIE • Ali CARTER • Andrew PENN • Brian LONG • Dave MONAGHAN • David BIRKIN • Helen PENN • Jamie PENN • John RIDDIOUGH • Joseph MONAGHAN • Matthew FISHER-GILL • Riva MANN • Susan ELDER • Vicky COE • Victoria RIDDIOUGH.
We're in a fantastic position for this coming week as all the roles are already filled! this is much appreciated and makes a big difference so thank you everyone who has already come forward
A very important reminder now, that all participants under the age of 11 MUST be within arms reach of a responsible adult at all times. IT IS NOT ALLOWED FOR UNDER 11'S TO RUN UNACCOMPANIED AT ANY TIME. There are a lot of safeguarding implications and if we suspect some one is flouting this rule we will remove the result and inform parkrun hq. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
We had a whopping 47! new personal bests recorded this week - incredible!

On behalf of everyone involved with Humber Bridge parkrun I'd like to say a huge well done to all of our runners who braved the heat down in London today and completed the London Marathon in the warmest conditions ever. I know a few of you were a tad slower getting round than you would have liked but honestly, you did amazing and we're all very proud of you.
That's all for now, have a great week - see you next parkrunday for more of the same
