We are almost at our 9th birthday – which is next week – on the day you can expect a bring and share picnic, and maybe some superhero fancy dress?
Our visitors from other parkruns today were;
South London Harriers
Shepperton Running Group
Running with Matt (RWM)
100 Marathon Club
Richard SOLANO WILSON
Kirsty, listed above, is one of the 20 people with a blue 500 top, and funnily enough I was running with another 500 top elsewhere – more on that later. It’s another remote report for this week – do consider volunteering for this (and other roles) especially during August when we are often quite short on help.
Special numbers for - Sam MCCORMACK with 50 parkruns, and Sammy ABBASI with a junior 10. Well done to you both.
Brand new to parkrun this week were;
Welcome to the parkrun family!
Well done to you all.
Meanwhile I was on tour with a few familiar faces – Ria & Melvyn Trundley, Ken Wright and many others at Crane Park parkrun, celebrating my 50th birthday, you can read more about that here, it was an eventful one;
One thing we really did notice at Crane was lots of shade, from tree cover – I’m told Roundshaw was rather oven like again, but the mud will be back soon enough I’m sure!
Lastly the stats;
