Event #195 – New Attendance Record!


FOUR HUNDRED AND TWENTY TWO... If this is the answer, what is the question?


OK, the clue was in the title... This week we smashed our previous attendance record to reach 422 runners, joggers and walkers. Not only that, but we didn't loose a single finish token either.. so well done all of you! :)

For anyone who wasn't aware, Maidstone parkrun was closed and so we put out a call for extra volunteer help. The response was awesome and hopefully you noticed lots of extra marshals in the car park, around the start/finish and out of track. Speaking of which, the spirit of parkrun was brilliantly captured by volunteers Claire and Flora handing out high-5's:


Your volunteer team for this week...

Can you see yourself in this pic?

Well don't worry if you can't - there are many more great photos available on our google photos album.

Lastly... ED Darran is running in aid of Bone Cancer Research at the Royal Parks half marathon in October. If you would like to support him there is a JustGiving page - thank you.
