Well done to all 259 people who ran, jogged and walked the course this week, of whom 32 were first timers and 37 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 12 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 23 volunteers and as always a huge thank you to them all:
David PAPWORTH • Roy STEVEN • John GILLESPIE • Steve WRIGHT • Sara COOMBE • Woody HUDSON • Alan POWERS • Gary MEAD • Debbie COOPER • Carmen BYFIELD • Rachel SHORE • Greg TYE • Mick MADDAMS • Lewis TERRELL • Tom FREEMAN • Lindsey PEARSON • Brenda FREEMAN • William HALL • Louise PEACOCK • Jessica HOPKINS • Rosemary SPARREY • Teresa WARREN • John ALLUM
The volunteer roster for the next few weeks is looking rather bare so please do consider helping out, especially if you haven't done so before. Please let us know if you can help email@example.com and we will add you to the roster.
Well this week there were no milestones to celebrate however, If you know you are running your 10th (for juniors only), 50th, 100th, 250th, 500th parkrun or even your 25th volunteering stint, please do let us know so we can give you the shout out you deserve. Providing cake to celebrate is not compulsory but very nice.
Talking of volunteers and milestones our very own John celebrated his 80th birthday and came along still to marshal. Congrats again John, was lovely to be able to celebrate just a little.
Next to John in the 2nd picture is David. David and his lovely wife Julie visited us from Bushy where parkrun first started. It was lovely to meet and chat to them and David very kindly was our additional tail walker this week too. They seemed to enjoy our challenging course and have now added H to their parkrun touristing efforts, well done! and thanks for coming along to see us.
Another apology for the dodgy scanning machines last week. They are all charged and dry now so hopefully all will be well this time, but thank you all again for your patience.

Help your parkrun
You can donate to Harlow parkrun through our "About Us" page. The donation will go to your "home run" and you can check this through your profile's update page.
Are you a frequent parkrunner, or does your barcode regularly fail to scan or you're having problems with your printer? You should consider getting some ERS Barcodes. Make our scanners lives easier and be the envy of all of your parkrunner chums!
Don't forget "NO BARCODE NO TIME" so #DFYB
Please also remember, under 11's must run "accompanied by an appropriate adult" at all times during the parkrun (not minutes apart) - no adult, no time, no exceptions.
