We had a roster absolutely stacked full of healthcare professionals
As ever a huge thank you to all of this weeks amazing volunteers for making it all happen.
Outside of parkrun it was a super busy weekend of madcap sporting activities for Harrogate parkrunners. Massive congratulations to all of the Bed-racers and bed race volunteers it always seems that the Castle Grounds are like a parkrun day out on bed race day. Sunday saw a fair few of you doing the ITU Triathlon in Leeds to round off an amazing weekend.
And that's nearly it but we couldn't sign off without an update on Simon William's antics in South Africa. That's right you all wished him luck and it seems to have worked. We think the phrase is "smashed it !" Simon finished the Comrades Marathon (yes all 90km of it - that's 18 parkruns) in 9hrs 17mins 58...take a bow Simon.
And that's your lot.
Just a few reminders....
Post run refreshments - Join us at Caffe Marconi (2 Princes Square) each week after parkrun to catch up, process the results, have a coffee and a good old chat. The food and drinks are great and Sarah and her team are huge fans of parkrun! It's good fun and you can even get your result early!
In Case of Emergency - Please double check that your emergency contact details are complete and up to date on your parkrun profile. You'll find a link to your profile on your weekly results email and newsletters or via this How can I access my profile / account? link. It only takes a few moments, put could really help us to help you if and when you most need it.
Barcodes - Is your printed barcode looking tired or not scanning easily? There are a range of tough and durable plastic parkrun barcode ID tags and parkrun wristbands available via http://www.parkrun-barcode.org.uk/ These are the only UK authorised and professionally printed tags and feature the parkrun branding and logo, your athlete details and can also be personalised with your ICE (In Case of Emergency) telephone number and additional information including specific medical details. They come in a range of options and can be attached to a key ring, laces, and running vest zip or worn on a lanyard.
Volunteering - We do ask that each of you, if possible, volunteer 3 times over the year. It is thanks to our great volunteer teams that parkruns around the world continue to happen every Saturday. Harrogate is no exception and without your kindness we would not be able to put on this wonderful free event. If you would like to help out please visit http://www.parkrun.org.uk/harrogate/volunteer/ for more information or talk to anyone in a yellow vest on parkrun day and then email us at email@example.com to get involved. If you still want to run don't let that put you off we have lots of jobs where you can still run !
