Mulbarton parkrun #288

Well done to the 72 hardy parkrunners who joined us on our 288th event. We had a lovely frosty start to todays 5k and hopefully the ground was a little firmer than usual if a little bit icy in places.

The team of volunteers did brilliantly today. Barry stepped in to pace at 30 minutes exactly (the slow motion finish was a nice touch) with both Vicky and Stuart accurately clicking you all across the line, Tim handing out tokens joined by Ian scanning you in and Dennis making sure everyone had finished. Good work people, it's always nice when things go smoothly.

Please do have a look at the volunteer pages and if you are available to help, please email in to

All of the parkruns only happen because people volunteer and if you think it might be daunting we always have someone on hand to ask or help. It's a great way to get to know a few more people involved in our little slice of the parkrun picture.

It was nice to welcome people from Surrey, Yorkshire and Gorelston, joining a few of the regulars in what turned out to be sunny Mulbarton and hope we get to see you all again soon.

I'll leave you with this thought.

Whether the weather is fine ,or whether the weather is not,

Whether the weather is cold, or whether the weather is hot,

We'll weather the weather, whatever the weather, whether we like it or not.


Hope to see you again soon.

Steve (this week's run director)
