It was a warm one, glad I was just standing around volunteering really, looking the perspiration on the finishers!
There were 222 parkrunners at Newark this week. In amongst the 28 first timers and 6 tourists were a contingent from Witham Runners and visitors from the land down under. 39 of you grabbed PBs - well done.
We had another missing token in the post run sort out. Please try to make sure you don't walk away with any as it creates work to make up new ones for the following week.
Congratulations go to Gill OXLEY, Philippa CLARKE, John MILLER and Kay PETERS as they passed their 50 mark last week. Jamie MAWER gets a mention too, a Junior runner passing the first 10 run milestone.
