Leamington parkrun #414, 9th March 2019

A windy, sunny and rainy morning welcomed the 563 parkrunners at Leamington today. Welcome to all new parkrunners and tourists. Hope you enjoyed our flat run with an undulation as I recently heard it described.

Big congratulations to Sam (who came third this week - wow!) and Michael Weaving on a father and son 250th parkrun, a fantastic achievement.  Congratulations also to Emma Teevan and Philip Voyias who ran their 50th parkrun too.


Thanks as always to all volunteers including our tail walker who came super prepared with headphones and a Moby playlist in hand. Don’t forget Hi-viz heroes are always needed. Please sign up at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/leamington/futureroster/

I love the attraction that parkrun has become and was delighted to spot yet another neighbour and his son running (I think) for the first time. That makes more than 50% of my neighbours participate in parkrun, probably about the most common thing between us. Thank you parkrun.

Congratulations to everyone who participated, see you at Leamington soon.
