What a busy week, hence the lateness of this run report.
Last Saturday's parkrun saw us say Goodbye to one of the Original Run Directors Elaine Sage. I am sure we will still see Elaine at parkrun in the future but she has had to step away as she has other commitments. Thank you Elaine for everything you did for Shepton Mallet parkrun prior to it starting too.
We had a visit from Alzheimers Research UK who are an associated charity with parkrun and who were advertising their “Running down dementia” campaign. This is an event which anyone can sign up to, in order to raise sponsorship whilst they run over the summer. The idea is to run 100k and raise a £100 each. The 100k does not have to be run all at one stint you will be pleased to know.
We also had a visit from parkrun Headquarters. Clare Fowler and Glen Turner came to see us and enjoyed the run. Glen was our first finisher last week too. Clare is Head of Safeguarding for parkrun and Glen is Head of communications.
