Well done to all the 161 of you who walked, jogged or run last weekend. We had 58 first timers and 31 of you recorded new Personal Bests!
We had near perfect running weather and so hope you achieved whatever targets you'd set yourself!
On a happy note, Nigel Hidson hit his 100th parkrun this week... well done Nigel!!
On a less happy note there was an incident involving a possible collision between an elderly lady and our runners. We can't stress enough that other park users have right of way along the paths and that runners MUST slow and be prepared to STOP if there is not sufficient space to pass safely - remembering that what you consider to be enough may not be to the other person!!
In light of the above we will need to field more marshals at future events to ensure everyone's safety - but this will require additional volunteers so please consider offering to help if you can.
Retuning to happier topics, this week saw little Luke join his "big" brother Max and dad David complete his FIRST EVER 5k parkrun!! Mum Kate and lil'sis Emma were providing much needed volunteer assistance
This week we have LOADS of great photos thanks to Sarah, so why not check yourself out via our google photos album?
Please give it up for your hi-viz heroes... not all of which are captured below. If you'd like to get involved please check out the future roster and email via email@example.com
Lastly...This week we were joined by Tracey Open who has been running 5K every day throughout July to raise money for an ASD assistance dog for her grandson who has autism. If you'd like to support Tracey she has provided us with this link.
