The advantage of having a husband and wife duo on our Event Team, means that if one of them falls ill when it’s their turn to Run Direct, the other can step up to the plate. Even if it means sacrificing a milestone. So, with Helen incapacitated, Michael gallantly gave up what would have been his hundredth parkrun to make sure everything went smoothly this morning. And he couldn’t have done it without his team of incredible volunteers!

One of our participants this morning learned a valuable lesson about parkrun tourism; make sure you remember your trainers. Yep, Richard Pinto of Stavanger parkrun in Norway (he’s the Event Director there no less) found he’d forgotten to pack an important part of his running kit. Fortunately, after an appeal for spare trainers, regular volunteer and parkrunner Jed Devlin (he gives the best hugs) came to the rescue. The global parkrun community is absolutely brilliant! Richard, we hope you enjoyed our course...and Jeds trainers.
The cooler weather means that we’re getting into PB season, as proven by 37 of the 171 parkrunners this morning. 28 of you were first timers, and hopefully not last timers! We also had a wonderful compliment from a gentleman who has ran over 500 parkruns that our distance is spot on 5k. Those start and finish posts were definitely worth it!
That’s it for this week, have a good’un everyone, see you next time, #loveparkrun and most importantly, #dfyb!!
