BBC filming

On 13th January the BBC will be visiting Wanstead Flats parkrun to do some filming. They are interested in talking to a group of about 20 runners that are newer to exercise, on the 'larger side', are running primarily for health reasons, don't do any[or much] running other than parkrun. If you are interested please give your name this coming Saturday. You will need to stay about 30-40 minutes after the run.

thanks

Event 346

Well done to all participants and volunteers this morning.

This week 201 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 9 were first timers and 43 recorded new Personal Bests.

If you took away finish tokens 4 or 69 please return them and nothing will be said.

Unfortunately we will need to alter the course from next week to prevent this continued loss. The finish is to be moved closer to the scanning desks. You will need to get scanned IMMEDIATELY on finishing else no result. Sorry. This is in line with many other events including Bushy Park.

On happier news congratulations to those that were in the London Marathon Ballot draw this morning.
