Another week whizzes away and another Saturday morning finds us once again in the Humber bridge country park.
Luckily for us after the gloomy week we've had, Saturday was sunny and inviting - certainly puts a spring in your step and surely the temperature must improve soon?
We arrived to set up the course and were soon joined by some eager volunteers,who helped with the finishing touches as we awaited the starter's orders.
We say a big thank you to our volunteers this week, Dave MONAGHAN • Dominic ASHFORTH • Francine ASHFORTH • Helen PENN • Ian HAIRSINE • John LATUS • Kate DAVEY • Matthew FISHER-GILL • Mike EGAN • Neil HERON • Pete KIRK • Phil JENNINGS • Shelley DUNN • Victoria RIDDIOUGH.
We can't stress enough how much we appreciate your help in getting this fantastic parkrun moving every week - we do always need more folk to come forward though so please don't be shy

As we are nearing our 5th anniversary it is time to start crunching the stats to see who our annual trophy winners will be. This does of course mean that we will need our current trophy holders to return their silverware by the end of the month please
Great to see so many of you in action today at the Beverley 10k today, both running, supporting and for our Beverley ac members, hosting and marshalling the race. Thank you very much to them and well done to all who took part
A quick word of congratulations to Simon and Rachael Getgood who are parkrun regulars that we've not seen for a few weeks, with good reason as it turns out as they were back this week with their gorgeous new baby boy. Very best wishes to you both on the arrival of our first parkrun baby
Have a great week everyone
see you soon.
