Scorchio fun was had by one and all this morning ... 197 runners and 18 volunteers (our second highest number of volunteers ever - Thank you Thank you ) all
sweating in enjoying the stunning park ...
We had one parkrun milestone to report Rishi SHARMA reaching the Red T shirt 50 run milestone - well done ... he will soon be able to claim that desirable item, latest news here: https://www.parkrun.com/news/2018/03/26/milestone-t-shirts-a-new-process/ congratulations.
We had tourists from Spain, Woodley, Northumbria, Scunthorpe and even the back and beyond; Swindon ... and maybe others that were in London ahead of the 26.2 miles of effort that at least 4 of our runners (including local, parkrun HQs Tom FAIRBROTHER ) and 2 of our super regular volunteers and runners Babatunde DAWODU and Rachael TURNER are attempting tomorrow ... Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate! Good luck ... but back to our 3 miles here at Osterley and well done to the 7 (maybe more, but did not have barcodes) first time runners. Its not always this hot at Osterley, but the welcome and smiles are a constant - so we look forward to you coming back next week!
If you think that it was hot today, think about the newly started parkrun in Kuala Lumpar Malaysia - which starts at 07.30am each week, to help the runners cope with the heat and humidity ... Malaysia was the 20th country to join the Global parkrun family ... so you can now plan your holiday parkrun tourism in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, Namibia, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, Swaziland and the USA. Not bad eh ... all free, all run by volunteers - just turn up with your same universally accepted parkrun barcode and a smile ... but if dont fancy those, see you next week in good old Blighty, here at Osterley ...
Thank you one and all ... Andrew
