It was a cold, wet, muddy parkrun # 357...
...but we still had a turnout of 407.
I was a barcode scanner and this week we were inside the football pavilion. It was very noisy and crowded which made it difficult to hear the beep of the scanner. There were lots of volunteers this week – were they trying to avoid running in the sleet?
Congratulations to Ben Badham who ran his 10th parkrun, to Kate Morse who ran her 50th and to Angus Baskerville and James Boswell who ran their 100th today. A big shout out too to father and son, Michael and Sam Weaving, on running their 200th parkrun today. Also, as a fellow DofE volunteer, I would like to congratulate Ella on finishing her Bronze DofE volunteering.

Late addition: Who knew that the high-vis volunteer vests weren’t colour-fast? The Braithwaite’s now have high vis undies!!!
