The team of Volunteers arrived at the park to drizzle and grey skies, fortunately for us the drizzle stopped in time to set up the course for another Newark parkrun!! The volunteers did a fantastic job as usual setting up the course ready for our runners to descend at 9am. There are still some gaps on the roster for the next month if you interested in getting involved please follow the link and send us an email with your preferred position.
153 runners joined the team of volunteers for event 60, 18 of them were first timers to Newark. We hope all the first timers enjoyed Newark parkrun and look forward to seeing you all again soon. Well done to the 28 of you that managed to gain PB's and to those of you that didn't quite manage a PB this week... There is always next week!!!
