Also, Anita Worthing volunteered for her 300th time (wow!). Given that Aberystwyth parkrun has been running since 2012, this means she averages about 37.5 volunteers a year. It's official she holds the age graded course record for running, but it's also pretty clear to us she holds the record for most frequent volunteer. Thanks!

The event was made possible by 14 volunteers:

Anita WORTHING • Andrew Peter BAKEWELL • Mel HOPKINS • Karen DAVIES • Ruth FLATMAN • Linda PAASMAN • Irene GRIFFITHS • Andrew GARROD • Lynwen HUXTABLE • Hannah DEE • Tristan ROBINSON • Stuart WILLIAMS • Brian GARROD • Andrew RICHMOND
