176 of you hearty folk turned up in some fairly cold and miserable weather… ‘Autumn's’ here’ was one parkrunner’s Strava title! I was unfortunately struck down by Norovirus so this will have to be a photo-less and stats only report – many apologies!
There were 21 first timers this week, 8 of these were doing their first ever parkrun. Well done to you all.

OPT IN TO VOLUNTEER E-MAILS
Unfortunately we can’t send volunteer e-mails to anyone unless they have opted in previously so if you’ve thought about it but have never had an e-mail please follow the instructions below:
For those who don’t currently receive the volunteer e-mails, if you follow the ‘manage my profile’ link in your results e-mail, you will find an option to ‘opt in’ to the e-mails. We won’t bombard you don’t worry! Well, not unless we’re really desperate!
We are still running the doggy detour up the field but there are plans afoot to come up with a course which doesn’t not involved a potentially lethal run up a muddy hill! Watch this space – more details to come soon!
As usual, the event would not run anywhere near as well without the wonderful group of volunteers that Graves parkrun attracts. Please remember it’s easy to volunteer, just leave a message on the Graves parkrun Facebook page or e-mail the Graves team on: firstname.lastname@example.org or See our volunteer page for details on getting involved in making Graves parkrun happen.
