Event #268

Shrewsbury parkrun
Event number 268
6th July 2019

Following the extremely hot weather in the week leading up to Saturday's event, it turned out that we just about avoided a spot of rain toward the end of this week's parkrun proceedings. Fortunately, celebrations for the birthdays of two of our parkrunners weren't dampend as the rain held of for just long enough for the delicious post-parkrun cake provided by Grace to be consumed. We also welcomed a number of tourists that came from as far as Texas.

A big thank you to our volunteers who made the event possible, one of whom was trialling the virtual volunteer app for barcode scanning. If you would like to get involved in volunteering, please email us at shrewsbury@parkrun.com or talk to the number checker after an event.

Congratulations to runners achieving their milestones this week
