Wash Your Hands!

This week at Black Park, 545 people ran, jogged and walked our fabulous course, of whom 34 were first timers and 54 recorded new Personal Bests (congratulations!). Representatives of 34 different clubs took part.
Recently, due to COVID-19 we have seen the cancellation of many large events. As the situation progresses, we advise you to check the Parkrun website for any information-you will also get an email notifying you of any changes. You can also check the Parkrun social media.
The park was beautiful, leading to a fabulous run. The atmosphere was extremely positive in what is a very unsettling time for some, and we need to keep that up in the coming weeks! Kindness really makes a difference, so maybe check in on your relatives or friends and offer some support if they aren’t feeling their best (here is some advice about mental health and wellbeing).
A big thank you to our 26 Hi-Viz Heroes this week, as we would have no Parkrun without them:
