And that's it, the last Porty parkrun of the decade! Many thanks to all who have made this decade such fun.
Please can Finlay Glass get in touch. Your barcode scanned but not your finish token.
We had some fun with finish tokens this week. It seems that tokens 50-59 were handed out in reverse order. The results have been re-processed to reflect this. Apologies if this affected you.
If you would like to volunteer in a future week, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. Go on, make it your New Year resolution, it is great fun!
Please join us for an extra parkrun on New Year's Day at 9.30am. This is the only day of the year that you can run two pparkruns on the same day. Vogrie and Livingston are running at 11am so, if you're quick, you might be able to do both. See https://www.parkrun.org.uk/special-events/ for all events on New Year.
This week 356 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 56 were first timers and 38 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 37 different clubs took part.
