Shrewsbury parkrun
Event number 264
25th May 2019

What glorious weather the bank holiday brought to Shrewsbury for our 264th event!

Congratulations to the 594 participants at this week's Shrewsbury parkrun and a big thank you to all of our volunteers - espcially to the three first-time volunteers!


In other volunteer news, this week's event brought about Chris Judge's first Run DIrector occasion "flying solo" at Shrewsbury - having previously RD-ed at Aberystwyth and Aberystwyth Juniors. A big thank you to all participants and volunteers that made his role such a breeze.


Next week we will be celebrating the first anniversary of the parkrun practice initiative launched by parkrun and the Royal College of General Practitioners in June last year. This year UK parkruns are holding "Pledge to parkrun" events all across the country to get as many general practice staff as possible to pledge in advance, to join thousands of walkers, runners and volunteers at parkrun events across the UK on the same day.


This week 594 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 82 were first timers and 78 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 38 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 41 volunteers:

Paul BOWES • Susan J BOWES • Tanya VEASEY • David SIMS • John TAYLOR • Eric PRIDDING • Clifford WEBB • Steve X NEWELL • Suzy O'SHEA • Gill EVANS • Pete HOUGH • Simon MEREDITH • Chris CLARKE • Martin STREETER • Dominic MURRAY • Paul JONES • Iain DAY • Chris WOOD • Glenn FRANCKE • Grace TAYLOR • Elaine DEAN • Christopher JUDGE • Sophie BAKER • Mary CLIFFORD • Jess HURP • Wendy HOLM • Alfred DEAN • Mark GRICE • Debbie ARMSTRONG • Spencer VEASEY • Philip TURNER • John HARRISON • Iris VEASEY • Abbie OSHEA • Josh BREESE • Jayne JONES • Alistair STUBBS • Kate CUNNINGHAM • Cameron BEDDOWS • Lin CARDING • Ella STUBBS
