We had a chat with the parkrun weather fairy mid run and after a moist start she came through and the sun was shining by time we headed off to Café Marconi to uuurm... not process the results cause I'd forgotten a vital cable....oops (but never mind we got them done later before heading out to watch the UCI Womens race in glorious sunshine)

Speaking of bike and all things bike racing it was a pleasure to welcome Chris Boradman to Harrogate parkrun. Great to see him get his parkrun fix before heading to town to talk on the telly (ps don't forget your barcode next time - he's the unknown in p113 in case you were wondering)

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.
