Event number 333: 6th July 2019

Slightly overcast today but still a warm one, well done to the 404 people who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 41 were first timers and 62 recorded new Personal Bests. 

Congratulations to Joshie Boczkowski on his 100th parkrun today and to Malcolm Dent on his 200th run.

We welcomed the Ancora Medical practice this morning as part of the parkrun practice. Dr Jajja brought his team to the park for the run and all made it round safely - well done!

First ever Scunthorpe parkrun on New Year’s Day!

Next year (just!) there will be a parkrun in Central Park at 10:30am, 01.01.19. This is a little later than usual but gives us a chance to run the traditional New Year Double Header - the only day where parkrunners can clock up two parkruns in one day - as our friends at Normanby Hall parkrun are also holding a run (their's starting at 9:00am).

If you are considering running both, plan you routes well, lift share if you can and come carefully PLEASE! Both events will need volunteers too - volunteering at both could be a challenge but run one volunteer one could work?
