Just a brief report this week. If anyone other than usual suspects fancies writing a run report please let us know. I am sure lots of our readers would welcome a fresh contribution.
Congratulations to Jake Brech who completed his 50th run and to Melanie Young from Ashton Court in Bristol who chose Upton Court for her 50th different parkrun venue.
Special thanks to Lisa Euden, who carried out her 25th volunteering stint. We should all be very grateful that you volunteer so much. Your ratio of Volunteering Credits to Runs is second to none.
The eagle-eyed amongst you who finished from 23rd position onward will have noticed that the Results page has placed you one position higher than the finish token you were given. This happened because someone crossed the line having completed just one lap. The gentleman concerned realised his mistake and told me about it straight away. Thanks for being honest and I'm glad you haven't saddled yourself with an impossibly fast PB! A useful reminder for everyone that you should only go through the finish line and into the funnel if you have completed both laps of our course, and therefore run/jogged/walked a full 5km.
It was great to see three first timers, so welcome Megan, Charlotte and Sarveshwar. We hope to see you again very soon. It was also good to see quite a clutch of runners returning for their 2nd, 3rd and 4th runs. Hopefully it's becoming a habit. At the other end of the scale I notice that Dave Thomas has now got 434 runs under his belt. Very impressive!
APTOTW is shared this week by Abbu Abdullah and Moray Barclay who both clocked 22:22.
