Event #150, 07.04.2018

Well, that was our 150th event this morning! Thanks to everyone who participated. We had all our finish tokens returned, thank you!

Just a 'wee' reminder that urinating in the park is not permitted. Please ask a volunteer where the nearest toilets are if you need one.

If you'd like to volunteer please email in with your barcode number, portobellooffice@parkrun.com. You can see the future roster here. We would like to have pacers for our birthday on April 21 but won't proceed with this until we have all the essential roles filled.
