This weeks event started warm and dry but then the torrential rain came soaking all who where running and volunteering.
We had visitors from Poole, Southend and Durham this week and Matt Sandford reached his 50th parkrun milestone.
There where technical difficulties withe the barcode scanners failing which was overcome by using parkrun virtual volunteer app.
It was brought to our attention that there are some junior runners who are only completing 1 lap of our 2 lap course unaccompanied by a responsible adult and then coming through the finish funnel and collecting a finish token.
If the 2 laps are not completed these results will be removed as the course has not been completed.
The volunteer rotas for the upcoming weeks are looking short so if you are able to volunteer please E Mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

Frances CHATER • Sophie CHATER • Sasha BIRKIN • Ciara WILLIAMS • Cathy BYRNE • Sarah OCKENDON • Paul COLLINGWOOD • Kevin BARRETT • Mary WITHALL • Rob WITHALL • Tracy HOWARTH • Andreas SCHWARZ • Nanette MORGAN • Julia BROOKS • Mark OCKENDON • Linda GRIMES • Rachel CAIRN • Caroline LOUCH • Maddy NEVES • Paul GREEN • Ali KHALILI • Daniel MOSS • Matt MCKARELL • Michelle WICKE
