A great turn out today for our last parkrun of the decade with 319 runners, joggers and walkers enjoying the muddy course around Bath Skyline. Congratulations to John Bull and Michael Stanley (pictured) for reaching their 100th parkrun. What a great effort!

A special thanks to Malcolm Sutton who stepped in at the last minute to marshal in the potato field and ended up with the most difficult task of the morning keeping the cows in the correct field and allowing the run to continue. You were amooozing!

We were fairly short on volunteers today so also a big thanks to Emily Menko who, having arrived extra early for marshalling, was roped into help set up the course before moving on to barcode scanning and finally sorting the tokens at the finish!

Thanks also to Matt Lewis and Victoria Randall who both volunteered for the first time today.

Don’t forget the extra Bath Skyline parkrun on New Year’s Day. It’s at the later time of 10:30am so you can still have a late night, enjoy singing Auld Lang Syne, and be up in time for parkrun. If you know you’ll over do it during the evening and will not feel like taking part then why not volunteer instead.   Please get in touch by email at bathskyline@parkrun.com as we still have a fair few gaps in the roster. Hangovers are not compulsory.

See you in 2020.
