We always say "it never rains at Falkirk parkrun" and once again we we were proven right. Despite the weather bullies trying to insist we would be ravaged by lightning and washed away by torrential rain, once again the run proceeded in full sunshine.
Jennifer Poyner ran her 145th parkrun today on her first time at Falkirk and her last before she moves to deepest, darkest England.
Laura Tooey stepped in to give a mother and sone from Inverness to Grangemouth stadium so they could watch their daughter/sister in action at the national championships. #loveparkrun
Congratulations to Tamsyn Sloan on running her 50th parkrun today.

Don't forget our paced event on 7th September where we are hoping to get 400 runners to celebrate the 400th Falkirk parkrun. Get the date in your diary and tell everyone you know.
Keep running, keep smiling and don't forget your barcode.
