Well folks, it was another soggy one but that didn't dampen the spirits of our wonderful team of volunteers! This week there were 399 runners, of whom 47 were first timers and 74 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 28 different athletics clubs took part and we welcomed a few parkrun tourists as well.

Funnel duckers

Once again this week there were 'funnel duckers' PLEASE PLEASE everyone when you cross the finish line, you must continue right through the funnel and collect your finish token. EVEN IF you don't have your barcode or you don't want your time... stay in line in the funnel, collect your finish token then just drop the finish token off at the scanning table.....simples!

When you go past the timer on the finish line you will be allocated a time. If you then double back out or duck out of the funnel the times and positions don't match up and you affect the time of every single runner after you.

PLEASE understand when runners are finishing, especially at peak finishing times the timer really has to concentrate. Don't stop to ask what your time was and please don't take offence when the timer is shouting to everyone to move down as there are finishers piling up behind you at the finish line.
