It’s definitely the time of year where we are greeted by a cool and dark start to a Saturday morning, at least the rain held off (for now). Some might say perfect weather for a run around our lovely award winning park ... I am not one of those people and deeply regretted not having a long sleeve on but at least you all got to see my shiny new volunteer 50 shirt - only to be trumped by CoED Catherine in her 100 volunteer shirt... I'm not *that* far off
Lets see some more of you in parkrun milestone shirts soon!
Anthony BLIGHT and Daniel GRAHAM joined the 50 club - well done guys.
I'd like to thank each and everyone of you that contributed to our collection for Blackpool Food Bank and special mention to the few of you who helped the wife and I carry it all to the van! I have dropped it off this morning and they were so grateful. It’s s also been brought to our attention that perhaps some of you missed the announcement of our collection so we will taking contributions again this Saturday.
Parkrun is a brilliant event for all abilities but just a polite reminder that we share the park with everyone so please try to avoid being more than 2 runners wide and stick to the left unless overtaking where possible as that’ll prevent the full paths being blocked especially in the narrower sections of the park.
