Milton Keynes parkrun is cancelled on 3 June 2017: Colour Obstacle Rush using major parts of course

Milton Keynes Parkrun event number 376 20th May 2017

What does a runner have to eat when they are in last place?

Ketchup!

This week we had 339 runners who enjoyed the sunny weather around Willen lake. Many of our local runners travelled around a bit today due to the Decathlon run which was on after our parkrun. For those who voted remain, you guys got a lot of support near the finish from the Decathlon runners which was really great!

Hope anyone who travelled around also enjoyed their run.

38 new or visiting runners today. Thanks for visiting MK and do let us know how you got on by visiting our Facebook page. Phil from Hitchin gets a special mention!

46 new PBs today. You guys like running in the sun. These included Pritesh Patil with 22:12 and also Hannah Clay with 29:48

Representatives from many different running clubs came today including
RSPB Staff Association Running Club and Aylesbury Running Group

We had a very special volunteer today. Benji the dog helped us out as our tail runner and even had a special jacket to go with the job.

Milton Keynes Parkrun event number 375 13th May 2017

We just missed the small shower of rain today which fell just after parkrun ended which was lucky (unless you like running in the rain). We had two very enthusiastic run directors and I hope you noticed the various flags distributed around the course, I think it had something to do with Eurovision.

53 new or visiting runners today which is great. Do let us know how you got on by visiting our facebook page.

60 new PBs today which is also a great achievement! These included Mohammed Hassanali with 28:27 and also Leanne Jenkins with 30:00 on the dot.

Representatives from many different running clubs came today including Newmarket Joggers and Stopsley Stridders Jogging Club

A quick notice to all runners: remember to continue walking after finishing. This prevents the finishing funnel from getting filled up and makes the end flow better. Thanks

Congrats to…
Elaine Wells with her 50th parkrun
John Colin Pratt and Gil Kirkup with their 100th parkrun
