The sun was shining once again over Sconce and Devon park for event 44. As always the volunteers did an exceptional job in getting the course set out and the equipment ready for the run.
It was nice to see lots of familier faces as well as our first timers! There were 29 of you that visited Newark parkrun for the first time on Saturday we hope you enjoyed our course and we hope you managed to sample a cake from Rumbles the cafe!
Congratulations to all 60 of you that achieved PB's this week and for those that didn't quite manage it... There is always next week!
We have a few gaps in the volunteer roster for April and May. If you are able to help us out please have a look at the roster and email in with your availablity. Volunteering is just as fun as running if you haven't had a go yet, why not put your name down. http://www.parkrun.org.uk/newark/futureroster/
See you all next week.
