It turned out to be the last parkrun event we'll get to share together for some time, but event number 64 went ahead at Market Rasen Racecourse on 14th March with 123 parkrunners running, jogging or walking the course.
Of the 123 parkrunners, 16 were first timers to Market Rasen Racecourse, we hope you enjoyed the venue and the hospitality and hope to see you back again soon. We also had ladies with us completing their very first parkrun, anywhere. Welcome to the parkrun family Laura Smith, Kate Armstrong and Katie Searle. 23 parkrunners earned the right to ring the PB bell, many congratulations to you all! There were representatives from 13 different clubs including tourists from Norfolk. We hope you enjoyed our parkrun.
Congratulations to Rebecca Clarke who earned a PB on her 50th parkrun! Congratulations also go to Natalie Outen who ran her 10th parkrun this week. We hope you receive your t-shirts soon.

A big thank you to all our volunteers this week who did an amazing job. Thanks as always to our supporters too; Market Rasen Round Table, Duckworths, PK Construction, Brianplant, Smiffys, Nicholsons and of course, Market Rasen Racecourse.
We know it's going to be very tough for many of us to be without our beloved parkrun for an unknown amount of time. As soon as we can be, we'll be back, and until then we hope everyone stays as safe, healthy and happy as they can.
The Market Rasen Racecourse parkrun team.
