What a great turn out! Clearly lot of you have resolved to try the parkrun in 2019, as that was our highest turnout, barring the incredible New Years Day run on Tuesday!
374 of you on a chilly Saturday morning, including at least 38 of you doing your first ever parkrun, and 15 of you on your second one (lots of "unknown" finishers this week. No bar-code, no time I'm afraid).
Hope you enjoyed yourself, and you'll come back soon.
Because of the way the parkrun scanners work, bar-codes can't be scanned off of phone screens, or other devices. They must be printed, either on paper, or on a wristband or card available here.
If you don't have access to a printer, for this week only, we're offering a bar-code printing service if you don't have access to a printer.

You should get a PDF file. If you email this to, firstname.lastname@example.org, with your name, I'll bring them along to the next parkrun :).
Thanks to our volunteer team for making this week run so smoothly. We couldn't do it without you, Thanks go to:-
Sean MCAULIFFE • Josh DUNNE • Mark POPPLE • Samantha BAINES • Darren BARRATT • Caroline ROBERTSON • Liz MAKIN • Andrea GORDON-KERR • Chloe ARTIS • Emma HERD • Nick HERD • Cameron HARRIS • Rufus DAVIES • Grace DORE • Gary KIRK • Sam JEFFRIES • Laina DUPONT • Neil LAKIN • Karen GRACE • Elizabeth MEYNELL • Amy CASSELDEN • Joseph MARTIN • Susan HENLEY • Charles HENLEY • Christine WISE • Trevor WISE • Robin BURDELL • Sarah BABBS • Hannah RUSHTON • Nick TONGE • Tobias MOTE
Don't forget, parkrun is volunteer led, so if you're a regular, please think about joining us once in a while. If everyone volunteered twice in a year, we'd fill the roster, and not nag anymore in the run report
Finally, dog runners. We love seeing you running but please remember, we're not a canicross event.
You may think that your dog is well controlled, but if you are using a long lead, chances are you are getting in the way of another parkrunner. We would like to see leads limited 2 metres maximum.
When you are approaching the finish funnel, please reel your dog in (we had the funnel knocked over twice this week), and please, please take on board that there is a one dog per runner maximum.
It's a public area, so if you turn up with 10 dogs, all on 20 meter leads, we can't do anything to stop you, but failing to abide by the rules of parkrun will mean you don't get a result logged. Lets keep it fun for everyone.
Hope to see you all again on Saturday
Darren, Run Director of the day
