After a somewhat rainy week ( actually it was pretty miserable) it came as a lovely surprise that apart from a few puddles, our course was in pretty good condition. With a big thank you to Jamie, Dave and Glen for clearing all the debris beforehand.
Even though the weather has been less than amazing thus far, it didn't dampen the spirits of the 171 participants who joined us this week to run, jog or walk the course.
We had a whopping 41 first timers including visitors from South Manchester, Rodin Valley, Haywards Heath, Crystal Palace, Rothwell and Stretford! We hope you all enjoyed your visit with us and you'll come back again soon
16 of you took part in your first ever parkrun, congratulations and welcome to the parkrun family

Well done to all of you in action this weekend at the Sledmere Sunset trail race, Pontefract 10k or any other events, don't forget to tell us your stories, I particulary enjoyed the tails of Sledmere's Hills and mud
I hope a few of you took advantage of our Physio Nick Kirton this week who was kindly giving out free massages after the run. I wanted to get one myself but as usual was too busy talking and missed my chance....... Nick will be back with us in two weeks so do take advantage of this, who doesn't love a freebie?
As you may or may not know, we are away on the 29th June, we could use a couple more volunteers for this week to help out with marshalling etc, please get in touch asap if you'd like to help out, we'd really appreciate it.
That's all for now, have a great week.
