(EDITOR NOTE) I'm a little late in posting this as following event 251 it looked like the impact of COVID-19 mitigation actions might lead to the cancellation of events for a while and I didn't want to post this run report without comment if that was the case. And sadly, the right thing to do is stop parkrun events for a short while, the first time in 15 years there won't be a parkrun anywhere in the world.
Please look after yourselves during this time and also follow the parkrun guidance for social distancing such that you don't set up alternative group runs. We all need to look after each other right now. Please reach out to others for support if you need it. Keep well, body and soul. Jenny x
It was a chilly start to the event but the ominous clouds kept away and we had a lovely smiley crew all ready to cheer you all round.
Ben, Holly, Joshua, Samuel, Ruby and Emma did a great job of running the funnel with the tokens, stopwatches and barcode scanners being totally in sync for the first time for ages (for me - including the horror of New Year's Day). Thanks to you all as well for abiding by our no touch token policy. I'm sure it will have made a difference.
Thanks to Adam, Emma, Peter and Allan for their excellent High five free marshalling, to Mike for offering to pace at the last minute and to Sally and Hilary for bringing up the rear in such style with our lovely Mr Sullivan, his toe and Lucy the dog!
This is where I would usually do a shout out for future volunteers but we'll be taking a break for a little while as you know. See you soon.
