The one where we boiled

What a scorcher! The sun was out in full force and 255 parkrunners slapped on the suncream and turned up to the 371st Graves' event.

Our furthest visiting tourists came from Brighton and Edinburgh. We hope you enjoyed it and come back soon!
The lovely Catherine was our RD today and our thanks go to all the volunteers who make each event possible.
We were light on the ground for marshals this time but, hopefully, more of you will sign up  (and earlier in the week) for next Saturday.
Please, please consider signing up to our volunteer e-mail list if you haven't already. It's our first port of call to try and fill the volunteer roster each week. The link to opt-in is in your results e-mail.
Congratulations to Alison CHILVERS who completed her 100th parkrun today. I asked her for any advice she could give us relative newcomers chasing our first milestone. Perseverance is the key plus the support and encouragement of fellow parkrunners. She is still loving the super friendly atmosphere here after 3 years of running it.

Other milestones included Alexis PRICE and Emma WITHYCOMBE who both celebrated their 50th runs. Congratulations!
We also had quite a few runners with dogs and would like to remind you all to keep them close on a hand held lead.  My friend and I were nearly taken out by an eager springer running ahead of his owner on a waist fixed lead. Some of us are too old for grazed knees and gravel burn so please think of your fellow runners and keep those leashes short and grasped in your paws.

This week we had 30 PBs so the weather didn't slow some of you down!
