Event #266 Keith Ivison parkrun

Shrewsbury parkrun Event number 266 8th June 2019 The weather may have been a little soggy on Saturday but it didn't deter an amazing 521 runners, maybe the lure of cake at the finish helped.  The Shropshire Shufflers were out in force alongside others who wore red, white and blue for our Keith Ivison memorial parkrun, a run to remember Keith and other runners no longer with us.

Message from Christine Ivison:

Thank you Shrewsbury park runners, friends and family for all your donations of fabulous cakes for the stall and money for the Severn Hospice you're all fantastically amazing. Thank you to Jess Mia Eve Sue John Joe Anna Jenny Ivy Sally and anyone else who helped with the cake stall you're fantasticaly amazing too! We've made a total of £594.43p with the help of junior park runners eating cake!

Message from Paul (ED):

At the run brief each week we announce news and cancellations - that is why it is always important to attend and listen.

At this time of year there are quite a few events on in the park and some weeks we can work with the organisers so we can still parkrun while other times the amount of activity / traffic or blocked paths makes it impossible for the parkrun to take place.

Up coming cancellations are as follows:-

15th June - Carnival in the Quarry.

29th June - Food Festival.

13th July - Lets Rock event.

Remember this is an ideal time to visit a local parkrun and experience a spot of tourism, you could be the one putting your hand up when they ask at the brief if there are any tourists but we always want you to come back to ours.

If you are thinking of visiting another event please check their web site and Facebook page to ensure that their parkrun is on.

It was fantastic to see so many turn up from the Bethpage initiative (Shropshire Disability Network), to get more people to our parkrun - it is exactly what parkrun is all about and there were so many smiles and you could see the satisfaction on completing our parkrun.  https://shropshiredisability.net/inclusive-parkruns-in-shropshire/?fbclid=IwAR0gllqVBIiF6JXtaGQixUEbTxd11mDFhhSyB9JqQCqM7x6e9DdWkyDeumY

We were also joined by Shrewsbury Fire Station -

This morning our crew have been down to visit park runners in Shrewsbury quarry, raising awareness on water safety. Great meeting local runners and dog walkers down by the river and speaking about what we do.

Even our very own Steve took part in this mornings run.

If you enjoy a walk or run near water take extra care after bad weather and make sure your route is still safe #BeWaterAware #watersaftey#shrewsbury #parkrun

The Force helped to sort the tokens...

Remember there is no parkrun at Shrewsbury this week due to the Kids Festival in the Quarry so why not pop along to that and then watch the regatta that is on all weekend.

If you really need a parkrun to start your Saturday there are plenty to choose from far and wide but please remember that Telford parkrun is also cancelled this week.

 We are back on the 18th with the wonderful Adrian as your RD.
