A great day weather wise, as can be seen. This week was run entirely by Newark Striders, although one Notfaster couldn't resist the temptation for a photo bombing opportunity - Adam!

We had a good number of first timers again not least from White Watch who man the Fire Station just up the road. They were gobsmacked that we had reached 73 parkruns without them noticing and they hope to be a more permanent fixture going forwards (might bring in a few more ladies...)
Congratulations to Helen McLaughlin for reaching her 50 parkruns this week and also to the 37 of you who managed PB's!
We also had some rising talent in the form of Ben Smith, a first timer from Newark AC came in at 20:16, position 6 and is under 14! He looks like one to keep an eye on going forward!
Volunteering over the next few weeks remains a challenge, so if you are interested in seeing another side to parkrun and to meet different people (and other parkrunners) then please get in touch at email@example.com
See you next week,
And now for the stats...
