Run Report for Event #217

While it was still a bit blowy today, we had a lovely sunny morning for parkrun - and a full roster of volunteers helping out.

2019-08-11 09.19.52

We had 78 runners, including five first timers - plus some fabulous visitors from Nottingham - my home town! Seven people got new PBs - not bad for a windy morning :)

My favourite moment was when some of the kids started offering high-fives to the last runners entering the finish funnel -such great support!

Thank you all and come again next week!

Run Report for Event #216

It's the holiday season, but great to see a good turnout today for Run 216 at Hilly Fields Juniors!

We were a bit short of volunteers on Friday night, but it all came good in the end with a number of people stepping up at the last minute - massive thanks to all and especially those who volunteered early ;-)
