This week 332 people ran, walked, jogged - or a combination of all three - with us here at Roundhay.
18 people ran a parkrun for the first time; a further 31 ran Roundhay for the first time and 64 recorded PBs – well done all!
Congratulations to Jodi Bolton and Satish Patel on joining the 50 club, and to Heather Pawley who ran a PB on her 200th parkrun!
Today we had a volunteer takeover by volunteers from the ITU World Triathlon which comes back to Leeds - and Roundhay Park - on June 8th and 9th. They were handing out discount vouchers for the Sprint challenge on June 9th (you can save £20 off entry using the discount code is 'PARKRUN', valid till April 30th or when entries close) and advertising the various GoTri events in and around the city. If you wanted to volunteer at the event(s) please do let them know.
Many thanks to ALL of our volunteers who are the engine that drives parkrun - if you want to volunteer please do let us know.
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!
