Nobles parkrun Event #89 – 17th August 2019

17-8 Conrhenny

At least we got our view back this week lol

We continued at our temporary home this week - only another two weeks before we are back at Nobles. We seem to be having better luck than the 'Festival of Motorcycling', as the weather behaved and we filled our volunteer roster to ensure we had a 'hi-vis heroes' in place to ensure another safe event. Here's two of those afore mentioned heroes helping to add some romance to this weeks 'timekeepers' role - well done Tara and Ant!

Again we saw a good sprinkling of visitors and first timers - nearly 25%, which makes for an interesting first timers brief.
We do the first timers brief at approx. 8:45 - this is the chance to explain the route and the barcode process for our first timers. Fancy a go? This is a volunteer position that does allow you to gain run credit as well. So PM or email your interest to the management team.

Have you kept an eye on our Facebook events page! If not, please do so.
We are beginning to plan our next birthday event - we will be 2!
We are looking to repeat our annual prize giving - as started last year.
Anyone wishing to sponsor a trophy, or donate - please let Ian know.
Cakes - as ever - are always welcome.
We have also has a request for a 'Pacers' week - so watch this space

As mentioned at the RD speech - well done to all those who took part in last weeks 'No Rest For The Wicked' - you all done soooo well. Especially this 'Star' - Nicola Bowker, fresh from her recent Prudential 100, completed the six day event sandwiched by a parkrun either side - brilliant!

17-8 Bowker

We still had a few 'no barcodes' at the end - so please please please do not forget it next week.

Have a great week and enjoy the 'Festival'

See you Saturday
