Wow, just Wow!!!
Our 3rd largest attendance this morning with 544 of you lovely people joining our 36 amazing volunteers at our much loved Rising Sun parkrun. There were so many of you that we very nearly had an issue with capturing all of your times but quick thinking saved the day. We are aware of a couple of scanning errors so let us know if there is an issue with yours.
This morning (very early for Aidan and I) we welcomed Persil who are a new parkrun sponsor. We hope that you all managed to get a free Persil sample pack and remember to keep your sticker with your number on so that you can find your photo on the website, pic2go.co.uk.
Congratulations to Mark Boxshall on his 100th parkrun and Thomas Stutt on his 50th parkrun, a great achievement by both.
A massive well done and thank you to Aidan Batey for his 50th volunteer role as a pacer. Thanks also to Michael Ashby and Pete Hawthorn - our other pacers this morning. We receive lots of positive feedback about our pacers, if you would like to volunteer as a pacer please let us know. Also if you have a particular target time in mind and would welcome a pacer to assist you in achieving this, please let us know and we will see what we can do.
We had loads of volunteers this week and each and every one deserve a huge thank you for their continued support. We always welcome volunteers so if you would like to help just let us know.
If we did have to write your finish place on your hand this morning, we appreciate your co-operation and just to let you know that we are on the case to get more finish tokens.
We hope that you all enjoyed your time with us this morning and we look forward to seeing you again.
