Basildon parkrun Run Report #304

Welcome to Basildon parkrun Run Report 304, this week sent in by Run Director Pauline!

Many thanks to the volunteers who ensured that the last parkrun of decade and 2019 happened, the roster was looking very empty on Thursday evening. The volunteers were aged from 7 to 80+, you don't have to be related to the Run Director to volunteer!

Be like our hi-viz heroes and get your name on the roster at least once in 2020. Go to for further information and the Basildon parkrun volunteer email address.

We had 142 parkrunners, including first timers and tourists from Whiteley (Southampton), Peacehaven, York, Cheltenham and Johannesburg! Despite the muddy conditions there were 11 personal bests. Well done to everyone for getting round safely.

There were milestone parkruns for Robert Freswater and Norman Morgan doing their 50th parkruns and Patiricia Green did her 100th. If you are doing a milestone parkrun let the Run Director know on the morning so you can get a mention in the briefing.

See you next Saturday for the first parkrun of 2020. Remember your barcode as no physical barcode no result (it's the parkrun rules!)

Thanks Pauline!
