Well we managed to dodge the showers and we had perfect running conditions for this weeks run. The Stray is slowly getting back to normal with more of the temporary fencing having gone.
As ever it's a huge thank you to all of this weeks volunteers who made the parkrun magic happen you're all stars.
It was great to see so many of you arrive by bike. This was especially useful for the buggy runner who had a flat tyre half way round and was helped by a park-running cyclist who happened to have a pump on his bike stopping on lap two for a pit stop
That's it for now, 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.
