Event #224, 7 September 2019

What a cracking morning for a parkrun! Welcome to all our visitors and first timers. We were delighted to be able to revert to our regular course this morning. The bridge will be closed again in the future for permanent repairs, but hopefully we can plan for that!

A few folk presented barcodes on phones and barcodes that had disintegrated. I said I'd post the link to the official parkrun barcode products, so here it is: https://parkrun-barcode.com/

Finish tokens - we are missing tokens 234 and 235. If you accidentally took these home, please email us portobello@parkrun.com to arrange their return. We are only ever happy to get tokens returned to us!
