Roundhay parkrun 418 – 20th April

What a beautiful morning for a parkun!  This week at event number 418 we were blessed with a sunny  Easter morning, here at Roundhay park, in which 365 people ran, jogged and walked the course, from 24 different clubs, Leeds, London and even the USA.  We welcomed 49 first timers

and despite a hot Hill of Doom (or maybe because of it?!), there were some staggering sprint finishes throughout the field and a whopping 58 of us recorded new Personal Bests. Congratulations on that hard work paying off. The event was made possible by 23 volunteers

Many thanks to ALL of our volunteers who are the engine that drives parkrun -if you want to volunteer please do let us know.

Next week we look forward to welcoming the Mini Mermaids and Young Tritons back.  Additionally it will be Roundhay parkrun’s 8th birthday on Saturday 27th April. Feel free to bring cake!  We’ll be presenting the annual awards that morning and would also like to give out some “spot prizes” at the run. If you’d like to donate a small prize (eg running magazine, chocs etc) and/or nominate the spot-prize category please let us know and bring the prize in advance or on the day (previous spot prizes have been for first finisher in a hat, second dog, finisher 247, first wearing glasses, first in a 50 t-shirt, etc). Please see us at parkrun or email in to: roundhayOffice@parkrun.com

There is also a committee meeting after the birthday run which is open to anyone who is interested.

See you next week!
