Manchester was blessed with a couple of days of Summer and it wasn't just the weather that was feeling hot, our parkrunners were on fire this week with 89 new Personal Bests - that's over a third of people beating their previous time, great work all.

On Saturday we welcomed parkrun sponsors - Co-op Food - who were giving away water and tubs of fruit at the end, a welcome refreshment after a warm run - a big thanks to them.
We celebrated a couple of milestones this week with Simon SHEARD become the latest member in the 50 club and Miran APRAHAMIAN from Sale Harriers the 100 club - well done both.
You may have seen our desperate plea for volunteers on social media this week. parkrun is run and organised by volunteers and if we can't fill all of the volunteer positions then there is a risk that we will need to cancel. If you have been joining us regularly then we ask that you consider giving back and volunteering one week to give our wonderful regular volunteers the chance to run.
A massive thank you to the following volunteers for stepping up this week to make sure we went ahead:
Val BRENNAN • Tim BLACKWELL • Fiona ROBERTS • Anthony PAYNE • Sepeedeh SALEH • Tony BECK • Emma SCHNEIDER • Rosemary MALLACE • Jonathan LANCASTER • Ann CARNEY • Roz WEBSTER • Edith BLACKWELL • Andrew COLLEY • Iain JEVONS • Thomas WEBSTER • Kaylea HAYNES • Adam SHEPPHARD • Robert MAIDSTONE • Nick O'LEARY • Cat HANSEN • Jemima BLACKWELL • Ian BARKER • Damian CROSS
No volunteers, no parkrun! To get in touch you can email our Volunteer Coordinators, Emma and Val, on email@example.com, comment on our Facebook page, follow us on Instagram, or tweet us over on Twitter.
Have a great week and we look forward to seeing you back down at Sale Water soon.
