******Please note - due to Manorfest taking place, parkrun will be cancelled on June 10th******
There was a bit of a chill in the air on Saturday morning, but it soon disappeared once the 232 runners were off and running. 13 of you were brand new to parkrun - welcome! Tourists last weekend represented Warrington, Victor Harbor (Australia), Oakwell Hall, Newent, Lloyd, South Manchester and Cuerden Valley parkruns. Also running were parkrun uber tourists John and Joanna Cassells - they have run 233 times and visited a whopping 178 different events! I remembered after the run that I've run with them before at Penrith and Keswick. They have distinctive tshirts which when they are stood together say 'We love parkrun'.

Saturdays hi-viz heroes were: Alicia CARTER • Allan CAMPBELL • Annika STUMPF • Caroline Sarah EVANS • Catherine CUTTS • David OAKLEY-JENNER • Emma RICHARDSON • Esther ATTWOOD • Frances BRAITHWAITE • Hailie SOUTHALL • Jessica SCOTT-LAMONT • Josette BILLETT • Katie BRINSDEN • Kelly PATTISON • Lindsay GRAHAM • Michael NATTRASS • Neil ERRINGTON • Paula HARMON • Sarah HAMILTON • Susan FAWKES • Tracy BECKETT • Wayne STEVENS • William CARTER • Zoe EDMONDSON
