Event 18: 27/2/16 – The one with our first pacing event…

So after a few requests we thought we'd give a pacing week ago. We're not going to lie we had a few sleepless nights over it - but in the end we needed of worried and all was well...

A huge thanks to our merry bunch of pacers who managed to help snag a massive 48 PB for the field - well done all you looked fabulous!


But we can't go any further without mentioning our lovely bunch of volunteers. Without their time and support no one would of been able to take a gallop round our ace course - it was a cold one guys!


If you fancy giving volunteering a bash then please speak to one of the core team or regular volunteers. Trust us it's loads of fun and it's a great way to meet new people. Simply drop us a post on our Facebook page or send an email to sherwoodpinesoffice@parkrun.com

It is lovely to see so many families coming along to the Pines each week. Whether to run, volunteer or spectate. Look out for our junior takeover date in early April. Mikey and Isabel are raring to go!


Speaking of Isabel we can't miss another opportunity to embarrass her once again. Not every nine year old would get up at 7am to come to parkrun to scan for you on their birthday - we hope you enjoyed the sweets and cake?


Finally we just want to remind you all that without a barcode you will not get a time in the results. This week our male course record was smashed, but unfortunately the runner didn't have a barcode and therefore missed out on the time!

Your barcode must be printed and we won't accept any electronic devices (e.g phones, watches). Each runner must have their own barcode. We've had a couple of instances recently where multiple runners have scanned the same barcode for different tokens. This causes problems with the results - please, please don't forget your barcode!

That's it folks - Matt and his team of ace Magic Makers will see you at the bell for another epic run in park on Saturday.
