Gordon, David and Keith
Say 'Hi' to Roger, you may never see him in a hivis vest as Roger checks and sets up the course most Saturdays while some of you will still be in your beds and then runs the course. So if you see Roger be sure to give him a big cheer on your way round.

Thanks to all our hivis hereo's and the event this week was made possible by 26 volunteers:
Richard FAY • Rebekah SMITH • Gordon GEACH • Claire LANE • Jim LANE • David CROMBIE • Lisa PASK • Lorraine VINCE • Thea HOOD • Duncan HOOD • Elizabeth STEER • Mary CROSS • Fran HANSFORD • Matt RANDS • Claire FRITZ • John SOUTHERN • Edina BURNS • Kate MARSHALL • Jo PARKES • Roger WORSTER • Elaine WORSTER • Shaun PARKES • Anthony BOYLE • Sam DODWELL • Keith MUNRO • Harry WAKERLEY
Joining the Junior 10th milestone club this week was Isla ROBERTS
Well done Isla, looking forward to seeing you in your milestone Tshirt.

Joining the 50th milestone club was Joaquim (Flash) JERONIMO known as Flash due to his quick pace and determination! Welcome to the 50th club.
This week tourists Stephanie RUEFF and Richard BARCLAY joined us from the running club Tailenders, Oxford
Tailenders is a running club for bellringers. An increasing number of ringers have been inspired by parkrun to take up middle-distance running, including many who would not previously have imagined they could run 5 kilometrers! Fantastic, well done Tailenders. We loved the Tshirts and the salute, hope to see you again soon.

Important message
Please remember Belton House National Trust host parkrun. Belton House do not open until 09:30 and bring in a very small number of staff to facilitate parkrun. Toilets open approximately 08:30 and we kindly ask you to remember to please take a tinkle before leaving the house!
All volunteers regardless of whether parkrun or National Trust should not be shouted at if facilities have not yet opened, all volunteers regardless of being parkrun or National Trust should be shown respect and kindness, this also goes for other parkland users, we share the parkland we do not own the parkland.

That's all for now folks, don't forget there is no parkrun this Saturday 10th August and we return on the 17th August.
See you all next parkrunday
