Another dry day on the Stray. Early set up was in atmospheric mist but that soon burned away and we ended the event in sunshine. A massive thanks to the brilliant team of volunteers this week who got up early and manned the various roles to make this week's parkrun happen for everyone. Some of the team were new to volunteering and said how much they'd enjoyed it, and those trying new roles also got a different perspective, including seeing the start and the rampage towards the bench. Your shouts of 'thank you' as you run/jog/walk past the volunteers also mean a lot so keep them coming
We had lots of milestones achieved this week. Finlay, Ben and Thomas (10th 5km parkrun), Liam Mallow, Steve Newbould and Josh Wood (50 parkruns), Christine Smith (100 parkruns) and a parkruntastic 250 parkruns for Jeremy Scott. Hugh congratulations to you all and we hope you look forward to receiving your t-shirts. Remember, drop us an email or speak to the RD beforehand if you'd like a shout out, don't be shy!
Nice to see special leggings were worn for the occasion.
Lots of lovely chatter took place in the cafe. Croissants, bacon sarnies, granola and multiple coffees were all enjoyed and you know it's been a lovely post parkrun natter when you leave the cafe after midday. Please do come along and join us.
And now for 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.
