Burnham And Highbridge parkrun # 236 4th January 2020

Well done everyone who attended our Parkrun yesterday, and a big hello to all our visitors. A really good attendance to start the year…maybe many are looking to fulfill new years exercise resolutions with parkrun.

We regret the lack of photos this week, we unfortunately were not able to fill that volunteer role. The photographer volunteer role is one that attracts few people to come forward and help, mainly due to its speciality. If you able to assist us in the future please let us know. 


This week four hundred and sixteen (416) people ran, jogged and walked the course. In summary of this number, sixty (60) were first timers to Burnham and Highbridge Parkrun (of whom a fantastic 22 were running their first ever Parkrun), forty (40) recorded new Personal Bests, three hundred and forty (340) are previous runners and sixteen (16) were unknown without Barcodes. Well done everyone!

Our HiViz Team

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 (25) volunteers this week in surname order: -

Sue Baker, Mark Benton, Tracey Benton, Max Boyes, Ieuan Cornish, David Darling, Helen Davis, Adrian Davis, Georgina Della Valle, Steven Dorrall, Edwin Gaines, Mary Ham, Philip Hobbs, Trevor Hollingsby, Vincent Reginald Huxtable, Bill Monteith, Sue Nicholls, Allan Pendleton, Matt Powell, Colin Rufus, Ethan Ryles, Emily Starling, Tracey Thomas, Ria May Tilley, Stephen Walker


To all our visitors, we hope you all enjoyed our parkrun and please visit us again.

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 burnhamandhighbridgehelpers@parkrun.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
