Pomphrey Hill was on fire this weekend quite literally it was magnificent weather for this weeks run.
We had 288 people run walk or jog we also had 42 new personal best's and we had three milestones, Emily Jeffries and Jack Pitcher completed their 50th runs and Philip Riley completed is 100th parkrun. They celebrated with a Disney themed parkrun where Phil dressed up as pixie as per his parkrun nickname.
We also had one very special Milestone, and quite a rarity, as Andrew Boynton one of our new RDs did his 25th volunteering stint meaning he can now get the 25 volunteer purple shirt.
I would also like to thank our fantastic volunteers who make the whole event possible, as the weather gets better and we enter the summer holidays we start to struggle slightly for volunteers if you can help our parkrun it would be greatly appreciated. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org
