But we weren't about to let a little Yorkshire weather dampen the big day. Yep we had another parkrun wedding . Huge congratulations to KC ad Dougie who started their wedding day with three soggy laps of the Stray along with most of the wedding party.

As ever we couldn't do it without the volunteers who this week deserve an extra special thanks as conditions were truly atrocious.  Despite ths they were all smiles to the end !

And that' about it.

Just 2 bits of housekeeping.

1) We did have reports of at least 2 runners running on the road. This is hugely disappointing. We say it almost every week in the run briefing and our permissions do not allow it. So it really is 100% not allowed. We will remove the results of anyone who can not comply with this.

2) We had a spot of bother with one scanner getting soggy this week if you are not on the results email in to harrogate@parkrun.com and we'll fix it.

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.

And now for the official bits:
