It was a great morning for a run, and we welcomed lots of people to their first ever parkrun - inspired by the London Marathon perhaps? We also had a few tourists including Rebecca from Southampton who stayed behind afterwards to help with token sorting - thank you!

 

Several of our volunteers were resting ahead of the Sudbury Court 10k - well done to Tom, Dave, Pravin, Tanya and Jennifer who volunteered yesterday and ran the 10k today! Also Craig who marshalled at Canons Park on Saturday as well as volunteering for the race on Sunday.

No milestones today but I wanted to give a special mention to Dilip Kotecha who completed his first parkrun today after two recent heart attacks. I hope you continue to attend parkrun as part of your recovery to good health.

A few reminders to you all:

  1. #dfyb - for your time to be recorded, you must bring a printed barcode. We are not able to use barcodes displayed on your phone! If you are likely to forget, please pop a spare one into your backpack/ wallet/ car etc.
  2. Tea and coffee are provided at Canons Park parkrun free of charge! If you would like to donate towards supplies, please bring along some tea bags/ coffee/ sugar/ long life milk/ biscuits. You can also donate online to our event fund. For environmental reasons, we encourage you to bring along a reusable cup rather than taking a disposable one.
  3. Our event would not be able to go ahead without members of the community volunteering. Please have a look at the future roster and sign up to help when you can! We are now using the parkrun ‘Virtual Volunteer’ app for timekeeping and barcode scanning. I would recommend downloading this ahead of time - it’s very easy to use. Get in touch with the team if you have any questions!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for event #138. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
