Well, the sun certainly shone on us today at East Brighton Park!
It was a glorious day as we welcomed newbies, visitors, regulars, and dogs back to East Brighton Park for what is only our second parkrun since March 2020.
Congratulations to Richard Russell, who celebrated his 50th parkrun today, all of which took place here at East Brighton! Here's to the next 50...and beyond!
Do let us know if you're celebrating a milestone/birthday/other celebration, and we'll be sure to give you a massive Whoop Whoop!
Well done to everyone who made their way around the park today. As always, East Brighton was definitely the friendliest place to be on a Saturday morning.
Today's parkrun was another fantastic show of teamwork between participants and volunteers. Thanks to everyone for making the finish funnel and token scanning go so smoothly.
Did you know, there are a number of volunteer roles that allow you to both volunteer and take part in the run itself? We'd love to have you involved, so if you'd like to know more, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or come and have a chat with us.
Have a fabulous week, and we'll see you again very soon!
