Our 2nd event back since we restarted and a hardy 119 made it round the course, with a plethora of PBs and including a lot of first-timers to the course, many on holiday locally making the most of the chance to get out and about again. Mick, our ED, had crossed the water to the Isle of Wight to take part in some nice hilly running events this weekend so Sue was in charge of the microphone to set everyone going just after 9am.
We had a 100 Milestone achievement for one of our volunteers Rosemarie Osborn, who was a little reluctant to celebrate, but we insisted. Congratulations.
One Visitor Chima Nwa has been collecting photos with all the run directors of parkruns he has completed. Here's today's pic taken with our RD Sue. Great to see you Chi, good luck with the collection.
Many thanks as ever to all the volunteers, including Matthew from Poole, who offered his services and managed to combine a marshal role with our new Car Counting requirement. 80 cars today counted, so car sharing, and parking away from the main Wilverley Plain and Wilverley Inclosure Car Parks is keeping us within our limit for the Forestry.
Always happy to have volunteers come along and join us, please contact us either through facebook or the volunteer roster link on the main parkrun pages, or even by email to email@example.com. All roles are straightforward, even though they can seem daunting if unfamiliar. Training (albeit brief) will be given.
If taking on a Barcode scanning or timekeeping role, you will need to download the new virtual volunteer app from parkrun, and please go to the settings and scan your own barcode in where it asks, or bring your barcode along to the event and we can help you sort that out.
