Leamington parkrun Event 330 – 15th July 2017

The sun may not have been shining this morning and the rain paid us a visit, thankfully at the end ... but the warmth was definitely in the air as we all gathered to share today's event.

It was great to see our first timers, parkrun tourists and visitors. We hope you all enjoyed it and will return soon.

A huge thank you to our shining stars of today - our wonderful 31 volunteers. We were so grateful to have had a great team on board today as always. Please do give it a try; it really is as much fun as running and, without our volunteers, we wouldn't be able to run the show. Tess would love to see a full roster by Wednesday so don't be shy and please do come forward.

We all said a special Good Luck and Bon Voyage to Kenilworth Runner Carla Fuste today as she moves home to Spain. We hope you continue your parkrun journey there and wish you all the best for the future.

Finally, well done to our new club members this morning:
