EAST BRIGHTON parkrun REPORT #65, MARCH 14TH, 2020

A small and perfectly formed bunch of parkrunners arrived at East Brighton park to the warm welcome of a flurry of fuchsia! Our intrepid volunteers were sporting the new hi-viz jackets, and they all looked fabulous!

The sun managed to peep through the clouds as 25 parkrunners set off for this morning's 5k of fun. It was quite muddy along the way, but the course marshals kept us very safe! It was lovely to see everyone greeting each other as we did our laps of the park. One by one, we crossed the finish line, greeted with applause and smiles for each and every one of us.

We had a couple of celebrations today - Paul Pearson has now volunteered at East Brighton 50 times!! If you want to give volunteering a go, I'm sure Paul will be happy to offer his advice. Also, Terry James Avey completed his 350th parkrun today - yes, you read that right - 350th!!! Massive congratulations to Terry, and here's to the next 350.

No matter how many parkruns you've done, or how many times you volunteer, what's brilliant about being an EBie is that you'll always be part of a fantastically supportive group of friends.

Well done to everyone who came to parkrun today. Remember, if you every have any questions about parkrun (including volunteering), you can get in touch on Facebook, via eastbrighton@parkrun.com, or by talking to one of your fellow EBies.

Have a great week, and keep on smiling like us EBies do best!
