Today we were 9! We celebrated by inviting everyone to cheer our 3 runners in their 9th decade, Alan, Dale and Chrissie and our three 9 year old runners. The enthusiastic reception given to our star runners with more than 70 years difference in age amply reflected the diverse group of people who love parkrun and who have contributed to our 457 outings so far.
The sun shone on us and all of the celebration cakes were eaten. We had over 50 enthusiastic volunteers and 750 plus runners and walkers.
The full set of results is below and we hope to see you all again next week at Cannon Hill park
Just a reminder that on the 21st September the park will be in use for car parking for the T20 Cricket Final over at Edgbaston so we will be relocating to the other end of the park at Holders Lane Playing field on this occasion.
We are also pleased to announce that on 14th September Birmingham Samaritans will be providing most of the volunteers for the event. More to follow nearer the time.
