A good turn out of 58 runners, including 7 no. first timers on a beautiful Beckton morning.
A longer report today, as lots of good things happened.
We had a number of visitors today, welcome to Beckton Parkrun.
Hopefully your run was enjoyable on a relatively flat course and will come back again to join, along with our regulars.
A few PB's today, well done on pushing yourselves.
A warm welcome to some of our returning regulars that we have not seen for a while.
We also took the opportunity today to have a Macmillan Coffee Morning, a week early due to some upcoming hols from some members that enjoy baking for others. Was a nice treat after a great Parkrun with a wonderful table of amazing cakes. Thanks to everybody that made or bought something along.
The biggest thanks goes to the amazing donations that was made by everybody. An amazing £ 116.26 made this morning for a superb cause.
Well done. Thanks everybody. Much appreciated.
On behalf of all of us at Beckton Parkrun on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support, we want say a huge thanks. This is greatly appreciated and will be paid in this week. We may even have another next week when the nation has their Macmillan Coffee Morning.
In a months time we will do the same for Parkrun's partnered charity Alzheimers Research.
We also had some fun after the Parkrun during the coffee morning.
We had our own Conker Championship, with plenty of first timers to a great British autumn tradition and obviously did our H&S Risk Assessment and necessary precautions adhered to.
All the conkers were collected from our park that we run through and spent some time pre drilling each conker. Great fun whilst eating some wonderful hand made cake, all for a great cause of course.
Next week we can run the cake off and maybe collect some more conkers on the way and play again.
Lastly a big thank you to all the Volunteers, the event would not run without you all. We are always looking for more or new volunteers, so us regular volunteers can run too.
Enjoy your week, keep on running.
