Now to Highlight just 3 of the people who took part.
Most runs Complete was Eddie MEEHAN with a total of 545 with 7 done a Redcar, Eddie has run at 21 different parkruns as far afield as Singapore and has the V25 shirt with a total of 42 total volunteer roles.
Diane HALL a regular at Redcar completing 298 out of her 361 here, also amassing a total of 51 different parkruns all in the UK and has the V25 shirt with a total of 191 total volunteer roles.
Position Token 100 take us to Michelle Dale who normally runs at Darlington South Park, she has completed 8 different parkruns this year and is now entitled to join the Tourist Group and wear the Cow Cowl, and has the V25 shirt with a total of 33 total volunteer roles.
In the first 50 of today runners only 11 of them have the coveted V25 T-shirt. So, remember the names at the top and ask anyone of the them how to volunteer and what is involved, like setting the course out, First Timers briefing, sitting down after the event in the Bowls club with a cuppa and sorting out the tokens, somebody has to do it so that they are already for next week.
As a first timer to you lovely park where the parkrun takes place with quite a few twists and turns. The course is very well marshalled, unfortunately there was a considerably amount of chit-chat going on whilst the important RD briefing was being carried out. There is loads of parking, at the adjacent College.
If you see somebody struggling ask them if they are alright, and offer them encouragement.
Slight rant over with the main message is VOLUNTEER at some time and give the VOLUNTEERS a chance to run
Will definitely pop in again when UP North and see the park in all its glory with the flowers out.
As you have all heard by now we are having to cancel parkrun for the next two weeks, don't worry we will be back as soon as we can.
Mandy, Nat and Brian.
