Please let us know if we have missed you today if you have volunteered and not listed, please please let us know; we had some great offers just before we started today and apologise if I didn’t get your name down on the list.
It’s all quiet for about 25minutes before our event starts then all of a sudden everyone is jumping out of cars, people and prams running to the start line and volunteers throwing on bibs and guys asking about roles. Shane and I were talking about it this morning, it is very funny to watch the parkrun magic of people just appearing on the scene.
We had 62 juniors take part today and we had Ryan WILSON, Clodagh CASSIDYON, Jake RODDY, Sophie LUFFMAN, Ethan O'HAGAN, Jake ROBINSON, Jim MCKEON, Amelia SHAND, all achieving personal best times today; well-done guys.
Sean Molloy had the pleasure in presenting milestone marathon wristbands to Emily Rose KELLY all the way from Lifford and Charlie LINDSAY-SPENCE; they are now working towards an ultra-marathon milestone wristband. Remember to print out your certificate and take it into school; just go into your parkrun profile page and print out here is the link https://www.parkrun.com/signin/.
We had a few unknowns today, they haven’t registered yet so here is the link to get registered https://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/.
We have only one rule and it is Don't forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode. You can even request a weekly set reminder to bring a barcode. So don’t forget your barcode folks; no excuse you can even buy permanent barcodes here https://parkrun-barcode.com/
December 22nd is the date for our Christmas jumper event. We are asking everyone to wear a Christmas themed jumper on the last Sunday before the big man’s visit and could the adults bring a small donation of mince pies/biscuits for afterwards for tea/coffee in the café.
It would be nice to see everyone getting together for a cuppa and remember you get a 10% discount when you show your barcode to the café.
See below poll about holding a Christmas Day or News Years Day event for the kids. Please note our regular volunteers are not likely to be around for these events because they are looking for a well earned Christmas break. So if voting you may need to help out to run it.
