Well done everyone who attended our Parkrun this morning, and a big hello to all our visitors. Well the rain pummeled us first thing during set up but eased for the runners later. Without our customary wind the conditions were great for good running.
This week two hundred and fifty six (256) people ran, jogged and walked the course. In summary of this number, a very impressive twenty five (25) were first timers to Burnham and Highbridge Parkrun (of whom eight (8) were running their first ever Parkrun), thirty four (34) recorded new Personal Bests, one hundred and eighty nine (189) are previous runners and eight (8) were unknown without Barcodes. Well done everyone!
We appeal to all Athletes and Volunteers, regardless of which parkrun you are registered, who have not updated their ICE information on their personal profile please do so. Access to your profile may be made from your results E-mail or you may login to parkrun.com/signin. Once into your profile, “my links”, click on update and enter your data.
The hero’s of the day our volunteer team. So as you are running, spare a thought to the marshals, the finish people, the scanners, the samplers, the results processors and all who before and after, put out and collect the kit.
This event is totally and utterly dependent on these dedicated people, offering their time and talents to parkrun each week. Our run requires twenty to thirty volunteers per week.
Many of the volunteers are runners who have helped today, so if you are a regular, consider helping once in a while and allow our volunteers to have a run.
Our thanks to thirty (24) volunteers this week in surname order: -
Adrian Davis, Alan Parkinson, Brian Beale, Cecilia Young, Ganesh Gudka, Geraldine Hope, Harry Petheram, Helen Davis, Jeannine Darling, John Ppiper, Julie Gilfoyle, Katrina Bufton, Mark Benton, Mary Clothier, Max Boyes, Monique Boon, Philip Hobbs, Rebecca Reeves, Stephen Walker, Stuart Anderson, Sue Baker, Tracey Benton, Tracy Smith, Vincent Reginald Huxtable
To all our visitors, we hope you all enjoyed our parkrun and please visit us again. Today we had representation from Newport, Glasgow, Chichester, Tonbridge and Chippenham. Apologies if we have missed out any of you on parkrun tour.

The parkrun in Pictures:
Burnham and Highbridge parkrun couldn’t happen without the enthusiastic support of our volunteers. Many thanks to the wonderful people who created this week’s event and if you’d like to join the volunteer team, we’d love to have you. Please opt in to receive volunteer emails (via ‘manage my profile’ on any result or newsletter email) and contact email@example.com to offer help. Please take a look at the available slots on the roster and let us know if and when you can help out, and the role that you fancy doing. If everyone volunteered once in every five runs they do, this would help us to ensure that parkrun is fully staffed each week
