Barcode reminder...!
To get a time recorded for your run and for it to appear on your parkrun profile, it is your responsibility to bring along your personal barcode either in a paper form or by purchasing permanent cards or bands. Order Here
We cannot scan from phones nor can we write your number down from the phone, so please don't ask us to do that.
Each run you get recorded works towards the Milestone tees, so it's worth remembering your barcode.
Plus, you get a full record on how awesome you are! :)

The monthly event is this week, 7th September, if you want to take advantage of the seasonal weather and grab a PB, just follow your pacer number!
Full details of the pacers will be announced on our facebook page and on the morning of the run.
