Event #272


Message from our ED -  Paul:

I would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the parkrun rules. Several of them apply to conduct towards and respect of runners / volunteers and other park users. Swearing or abusive language/ behaviour will not be tolerated at our parkrun event.

I would like to thank all our volunteers who make it the event that it is, remember they are parkrunners just like you who have kindly offered their time to perform a role that week.

Fancy Dress and Cake donations needed:

We will celebrate our 6th birthday on the 21st of September. To mark the occasion we will be having a fun dress up, with the theme of anything you fancy (I look forward to seeing an assortment of dressing up ideas).
We will also be asking for donations of cakes. As in previous years any funds we raise will be given to Lingen Davies. This is a charity that Gail Clayton supported right up until her death and we wish to continue this tradition and of course remember Gail. https://www.lingendavies.co.uk/

If you would like to volunteer at this event please email Mark: shrewsbury@parkrun.com
