It was lovely to welcome the Co-op to the park on Saturday, and great to see so many people chatting to the guys and enthused by the boxees of goodies they received. It was even nicer that evening to see photos of meals made from the ingredients in the boxes pop up on social media.
We had 243 finishers last weekend - including a whopping 21 first-timers and tourists from Burnage, South Shields, Roundshaw Downs, Wycombe Rye and Mile End parkruns. Run Director-In Training Tony Mills did a great job delivering the run brief. I imagine that there are some of you who didn't hear it all though - PLEASE PLEASE remember to stay quiet for these few minutes. You may have heard the run brief hundreds of times, but you may miss important information, and you may be next to someone who has never heard it before. Thank you. Moan over!

There is loads of information about volunteering (and parkrun in general) over on our website. Have a look HERE
Congratulations to Maria Renucci on her 50th run (and to co-ED Kev Mulvey on his not-an-official-milestone 150th run) and to Andrew Carter on volunteering on 25 separate occasions. Thanks also to Glenda Blakey for the great 101 Dalmations themed cake - Glenda forgot her 100th last week, so celebrated a week late!
