Harrogate parkrun #362 run report


Well we promised you a dream team of volunteers and a blue sky and shades kind of morning and we always try to deliver.

So whilst the parkrun weather fairy delivered on the sunshine she really was outdone by the parkrun weather troll who was huffing and puffing and trying to blow this buggy runner (and everyone else) off the Stray.


Huge thanks as ever to all of this weeks wonderful volunteers. A special shout out to Mark who did a fabulous job in his first RD stint, awesome work.

In other awesomeness we had this weeks milesoners. We had three new 25 Volunteer club memebrs in Emma BRAUNTON, Katie RIGBY and Philip CARLING, amazing !

Molly HUGHES & Oliver GIDDINGS  ran their 10th parkruns getting them both into the junior 10 club. we had no new 100 clubber but Garry HOLDSWORTH, James MORGAN and James TUCKNOTT have all entered the 50 club and finally the amazing Caleb AYLESBURY clocked up his 250th parkrun Brilliant running Caleb.  

That's it for now.

That's it just a few reminders......

Volunteering -  It is thanks to our great volunteer teams that parkruns around the world continue to happen every Saturday.
