Have you SparkLEd?
Just a reminder that we want as many people to take part in our academic study as possible – if you have not done so already please do so now - if you already have, please spread the word to as many parkrunners as you know (in particular those who may not have taken part in a while). Full details at www.parkrun.com/sparkle. Oh and sorry - over 18s only please.

31st March 2012 parkrun will be the "March, April Run for Fools" and will have an Olympic theme. So come in your best Olympic Games outfit! Be creative shorts and a t-shirt is just too easy! Bring cake and we'll retire to David Allan's meeting room to eat the cake and have tea, coffee and a chinwag afterwards. We can also have a chat about the proposed "Pignic in the Park' later in the year.
parkrun 10th March 2012
I'm not going to go through the results in detail this week but just going ot point out a few things you may not have noticed. Firstly there were 69 runners this week of whom 32 were women and 37 were men. There was a grand total of 30 brand new shiny PB's (congratulations to those runners) and two Barnsley parkrun newbies, welcome to you. 33 runners were a member of a club and of those two clubs Barnsley AC and Barnsley Harriers tied with 8 members each running. Our top Age Graded runner this week was Jenny Wakeman with an 81.03% score; how did you do compared to Jenny?
Your volunteers this week were: Alan Mills, Christopher Walker, David Needham, James Chisholm, Jane Sandall, Judith Hygate, Sharon Schofield Susan Rylatt, Tony Murray and Vicky Levitt.
I've uploaded a load of photos to the Facebook page for your delight and delectation. And that's it for this week, short and sweet. Don't forget to SparkLE and we'll see you on Saturday for another Barnsley parkrun. (Barnsley, home of the world's toughest parkrunners)
