Event number 325

Double wow!! Massive turnout this morning with 497 runners joining us on the links.

Thank you all for your patience in the funnel as we worked through handing out the tokens in the queues. We formed two queues to prevent a build up beyond the timers and we did our very best to make sure everyone got the correct token - however, if you feel you are in the wrong position please let us know.

We had 6 runners this morning who ducked out of the funnel before taking a token, and we think we have fixed this. Please remember to take a token if you cross past the timers.

A few runners who were scanned are showing as errors, so if you were scanned and aren't showing in the results please email. Full run report is below:

Pacer Week!

We are trying to organise a pacer week for the first Saturday of every month.  If you'd like to volunteer we will be covering 19-40 minutes.  Please email whitleybayoffice@parkrun.com if you'd like to be involved!

 

Public Toilet Closure

The public toilets located at Watts Slope are currently out of action.  The nearest conveniences are situated next to the Rendezvous Café on the lower promenade.

 

Whitley Bay Core Team

The Core Team at Whitley Bay (the group of people responsible for ensuring your parkrun happens safely every week) are looking to strengthen in numbers to ensure this event remains sustainable.

We are looking for a few people who would be willing to be trained as Run Director, and who would be able to do this about 1 in every 6 weeks, with a little supplementary support in between with some tasks such as results processing.

If you're interested please email the whitleybayoffice@parkrun.com and we can provide some additional information, or arrange to catch-up after an event.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
