Well the lovely folks at Yorkshire Water and Morrison are still digging holes across the Stray so it was another reverse week. Hopefully we will be back to the normal route fairly soon.
We do need to say a big thanks to the workers on site this week who were great in making sure our runners were not interrupted by moving lorries during the run.
It's a huge thanks also to all of this weeks wonderful volunteers lead by first time, in at the deep end but totally nailed is as RD Fiona.
The weather was less than kind to the volunteers this week with a biting wind coming across the Stray. Not that that stopped a bumper turnout of 517 runners walkers and joggers eager for their three lap fix of parkrun magic.
Just a few milestones this week with Thomas LOVELL joining the 10 Club and Helen SENIOR and Louise MCMANUS both running into the 50 Club and last but not least well done all.
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 (oh my, the cakes..!) 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.
