Event #259

May the fourth be with you...... This week was a great opportunity to embrace our inner geeks and celebrate Star Wars day. Few things could be better than celebrating the key movie franchise of our misspent youth with a parkrun : )

The force was strong with you all as 200 of you joined us in all manner of amazing costumes to ensure this was the run we were looking for ; )

We welcomed 27 first timers to our course and visitors from Durham, Manchester, Rushmore, Stevenage, London, Nottingham, Tatooine and Jakku....we hope you enjoyed your run- we'd love to have you back again soon.

We had 12 people taking part in their first ever parkrun! well done all and welcome to the family!

Well done to all of you who were running today, I know there were a lot of you at the North Lincs half producing some fantastic times!  Don't forget to share your stories with us, we enjoy hearing about your race experiences and it really encourages our newer runners that they could be capable of this too.

That's all for now, don't forget to keep June 1st free as it's our 5th anniversary and there will be awards up for grabs..........

Have a great week

Helen.
