The 'calm before the storm' one...
Ahead of a full moon and Storm Ciara kicking in, 510 runners, walkers and joggers toed the line in the hazy sunshine - another high turnout. Well done everyone who made it to the start line, including the 80 first timers to the Prom.

Congratulations also to the 103 parkrunners who got a PB this week - great work.
In the pink!
Did you marvel at the pinkness of this week's volunteers, donning the new hi-viz of glory? Without these 36 people, this week's parkun would not have been possible. Thank you to:
Helen TODD • Gareth PERRY • Clare WALLER • Carole JORDAN • Marc BONALDI • Adam WALTER • Caroline NORTH • Michelle PAULI • Kathryn MARTIN • Tim PAGET • Jon ELSOM • Rachel DYSON • James MILLAR • Clary DREW • Deborah ABSALOM • Jenny THORNE • Dave SKINNER • David SPENCER • Sally ROLLINSON-BLUNDELL • Adriana KEMPT • Daniel BURTON • David MARTIN • Laura HODGKISS • Lucy ADITI • Joanna LYONS • Graham HALFACREE • Jeff JOHNSTONE • Ross MACKENZIE • Paul GILLETT • Claire ONSLOW • Lily GORROD • James MARTIN • Jimmy CAMERON • Ben HILLIER • James RING • Kayla KEMPT
You too could be sporting hi-viz hero pink! Everything you need to know to sign up is on this volunteer page and doing a volunteer stint is really appreciated. Why not give it a go? There are still opportunities for next week and the weeks after that.
Congratulations to Tara Shanahan, below, on an unofficial milestone of 200 parkruns. Great flying feet and paws, too!
We also had Rebecca Miller celebrating her 100th milestone - well done! - and a gaggle of 50 milestoners. Big congrats to regular volunteer Carl Bennett (below, being bopped on the head by his 50 balloon yet still sporting flying feet!), Carol Dawson (pictured below, below, with balloon flying free), Susan Leaney and Brodie Taylor-Moray.
See you on the Prom next week and #dfyb!
