What a great turnout of 208 on Saturday 14th of March, our 399th. When everything feels a little bit uncertain wasn't it nice to do something normal?!
I know everyone is wondering if this was our last parkrun for a while, but at present we can't answer that. Please keep an eye on our course or Facebook pages for up to date information about cancellations.
Shout out for Cat Lane Canter
Lucy came to talk to us about Cat Lane Canter.
This is a great local event, organised by parents that raises money for Newfield, Meersbrook Bank and Carfield Schools.More information about the event can be found on their Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/carlanecanter1/
Shout out to St Luke’s….
Last week we were joined by a lady from St Luke’s Hospice today who was raising awareness of fundraising opportunities to complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.
All details can be found on the link above– we know this would be right up the streets of some of you out there and supporting a wonderful local charity too.
PBs, Top threes, Milestones and First Timers...
I think this was a week for PBs! Maybe it was a bit of decent weather; not too breezy for Graves and no rain!

Welcome to the parkrun family Mike LANCASTER, Rosie SHERLOCK and William PREST. I hope you enjoyed your morning with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
As always, we want to say a huge thank you to our amazing group of volunteers – our Hi-Vis Heroes. Andrew CALLAGHAN • Andrew COOPER • Andy LEDBETTER • Angela MARSH • Barbara SALMON • Becci TAYLOR • Charlie LAST • Dan MURPHY • Denise ADAMS-JACKSON • Elaine BIRD • Helen HARMSTON • Helen SMITH • Jo ECCLES • Jo ROSE • Joseph MALLINSHAW • Jude BISSELL • Julie ARMSTRONG • Lesley BROSNAN • Lindsey DEIGNAN • Liz NICHOLAS • Magdalena BOO • Max HODGSON • Rachael HODGSON • Reuben MARSH • Robert NICOL • Roger KNIGHTLEY • Samantha HAWTHORNE • Sara HINCH • Stephen GILMER • Terry ARMSTRONG
Without them we couldn’t put on a parkrun. There are a wide variety of roles which need to be filled each week. It’s easy to volunteer, just leave a message on the Graves parkrun Facebook page or email the Graves team on: firstname.lastname@example.org or see our volunteer page for details on getting involved in making Graves parkrun happen
Full training is provided for each role and you would never be asked to do something which you did not feel comfortable in doing. If you haven’t tried volunteering yet why not give it a go next week, you get a super flattering pink hi vis jacket and a special orange one if you are our tail walker.
Thank you for reading
