#20 – 14th May 2016

Lydney parkrun
Event number 20
14th May 2016

Another glorious start to a Saturday morning and who knew that there were such cute bears in the Lydney woods! I know parkrun is a run and not a race but seeing Scott Campbell storm over the finish line and smash the course record was pretty spectacular and I think it set the awesome feeling for the rest of the finish area, with the PB hooter getting plenty of presses with 35 PBs. Well done everyone.

Congratulations and well done to those that graduated this week from Lydney 0-5k group along with other first timers. Welcome to Lydney parkrun family.

A special mention must go to our visitors from Little Stoke parkrun. It was lovely that you could join us and we all hope things can be sorted for Little Stoke parkrun.

Thank you to all our volunteers this week. We now have a volunteer rota on the scanning table for you to fill in when you can help and which job you would prefer to do (you can of course message us on here or email if you would prefer).
