The beauty of this week’s parkrun is such that I have spent *time* trying to work out flickr again and share a few amazing pictures. Duncan JOHNSTONE managed barcode scanning and photographs which is pretty impressive! See all the photos here:
The autumn colours are so magnificent that some parkrunners had to start running early just to get the extra beauty in.
There was little to no mud for our 99 runners (ice creams with flakes all around) and our five first ever time to parkrun companions were able to enjoy the beauty of the park. It doesn’t rain here and get muddy ever, honest!
Look, really, no mud!
Richard NORRIS ran his 50th parkrun – well done Richard, and there were a good collection of visitors from around the country. Indeed 29 first timers to the event, here our visitor from Upton Court approving the conditions:
There was colourful determination and flying feet:
Enthusiasm ranging from full on panting to bashful smiling:
And joy with friends:
With the tails finding the only water on the course:
Thank you to all the volunteers and see you next week for an equally beautiful run.

We now have an online roster showing you the roles we need volunteers for - click here to view.
|In order to ensure that the event runs smoothly each week, we rely on volunteers. If you would like to help, we’d really appreciate it. All roles are simple and we offer full training in the use of the gadgets (stopwatches and barcode scanners). If you’d like to volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or sign the volunteer board on a Saturday morning. Thanks in advance.
We love seeing people running with their dogs at parkrun, but in the interests of safety for all our runners, our volunteers, spectators, other dogs, and members of the public using the park, we insist that dogs are kept under firm control, on a short lead or harness, thank you.
Further information on running with dogs can be found in the parkrun Dogs Policy.
Post-run meet up for food and beverages:
Please do join us in the cafe at the visitor centre for post-run refreshments and chat, an essential part of the parkrun experience.
