Marlborough Common parkrun – Event 29 – 4 May 2019

Firstly a huge well done to Clare Kellar, Jeremy Foot and Kate Philp who did a great job organising our first anti clockwise run which was a great success and nobody went wrong!

Congratulations to the 34 runners who managed a new PB will have to come back again next week and do the same again when we revert back to the normal course, however we can't guarantee the additional excitement and distraction of Pigeon racing next week!

The event was made possible by 28 volunteers. Thanks to you all, we really can't do it without you.

Michael REYNOLDS • Cathryn RAMSDEN • Mary HEATH • Wendy JACKSON • Deborah HARDOON • John BLUNDEN • Nicola JOHNSON • Clare KELLAR • Alison LEIGHFIELD • Pete MOODY • Fiona CHINNECK • T CHRISTENSEN • Jeremy FOOT • James KELLAR • Catherine MURPHY • Fiona WYCHERLEY • William SANDISON • Cameron FRASER • Angela FRY • Rachel WATSON • Fiona HADDRELL • Kate PHILP • Charlie FRY • Henry FRY • Holly FRY • Max GRAINGER • Rachael BOONHAM • Bradley DICKIN

If you can and would like to volunteer, please just email us at We do have volunteering roles that also allow you to run as well like - set up and car parking.

We also had the pleasure of 50 first timers some of whom were tourists coming from Swindon,London, Leeds and others came from a little further away, this time not from Australia where we regularly have visitors from, but the beautiful city of San Francisco.

On the 25th May there is a Fun Fair on the common, so sadly we have had to cancel. Be a tourist on that day and visit Andover, Newbury, Swindon, Chippenham or Melksham, but please come back!

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Marlborough Common parkrun Results Page.

James' brilliant photos from today can be found here.

Have a great Bank Holiday and look forward to seeing you again next week.
