Welcome back Shang-Chen! Run report 568, 14 July 2018

We don't officially mark the 71st parkrun as a milestone, but this week we made an exception, as young Shang-Chen was visiting from Taiwan with parents Shu-Shiun and Chi-Ray. Shang-Chen was our youngest 50 Club member and reached 70 parkruns before returning to Taiwan a couple of years ago. There are no parkruns in Taiwan.... yet! Welcome back Shang-Chen!

Well done to Sam Whitaker who ran her 150th.

Triple hundred celebration – run report #567, 30 June 2018

It's always encouraging to hear parkrunners tell us what a difference it has made to join us here at Woodhouse Moor. So when Maika, a Japanese post-graduate student, celebrated her 100th on Saturday, she wanted to thank us all for welcoming her. A few of us had something on our eyes when she'd finished speaking, this is what she said:

"For me, it’s not just running 100 times at parkrun. My experience and life in the UK have changed since I started parkrun. I’ve made friends and joined a wonderful running club (Hyde Park Harriers) through parkrun. 

"When I struggled (I still do often) in uni or personal life, coming to parkrun and running with friends had very therapeutic effects. Thank you parkrun."

We had two other 100 milestones, Steve Allen asked if he could give the welcome brief (we're happy for anyone to do this, just contact us to ask how) and Tom Sidebottom, who has run every one of his parkruns at Woodhouse Moor. Amy Graham and Bartley Foulkes joined the 100 Club.

Next week is Pacer Saturday, plus there will be coffee and cake over at Wrangthorn Church afterwards. Let us know if you want to pace, or have a time you're chasing.

This week 379 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 26 were first timers and 49 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 31 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 26 volunteers:
