Local MP Rachel Reeves, training for Leeds 10k, was amongst a very healthy 151 parkrunners on Saturday for run number 49, but hadn’t remembered her barcode. Don’t forget your barcode, people.
Run director was Robin Smith, Harriet Potts volunteered for the first time and Michelle Shore and son Jack were in charge of the Naughty Corner.
Thanks to all of the volunteers. Check out the link further down to see when you can volunteer and the different roles you can do.
There were a couple of visitors on Saturday from Glasgow on Saturday too, friends of regulars Chris and Alyson Glover. The rain held off until tail runner Jemma Roe crossed the line.
Making his first appearance, the first runner over the line was a very pleased Aidan Curley, an Abbey Runner. First lady home was Hayley Nacolas, a Valley Strider, her second time in as many appearances.
Meanwhile elsewhere, congratulations to Bramley regulars Louis and Zander on their engagement!
What’s coming up then? Well, Saturday is the big 5-0! Bramley parkrun number 50. On June 4th it’s a Pudsey Pacers takeover. Then on June 11th it’s our first birthday party!! This will be followed by a get together afterwards.
See you all on Saturday for the big 5-0.

As you all know, Bramley cannot go ahead without all the awesome volunteers who come forward each week. We are always looking for volunteers and if all runners volunteered three times per year, this would keep bramley parkrun going throughout the year.
If you would like to volunteer, please look at our future roster http://www.parkrun.org.uk/bramley/futureroster/ Choose your day when you would like to volunteer, then email us at Bramleyhelpers@parkrun.com
