A lovely warm October morning greeted the 173 of you that took part in parkrun this week – almost felt like summer. We had 17 first timers and 23 of you got personal best times – well done. We had tourists from Hinkley and York.
Congratulations to Jeff Taylor for reaching 50 parkruns - t-shirt to follow.
Thanks again to all the volunteers who helped out and extra thanks to Adam Holland who completed his run and then helped with scanning.
New volunteers are always welcome. We have had to fill spaces at the last minute for past couple of weeks so if you can help please get in touch here http://www.parkrun.org.uk/newark/futureroster/. It is good fun and it’s a chance to give something back.
If you volunteer and can’t make it for some reason please let the run director know by text or email as soon as you can.
