A bit about last week, and a bit about next week.

Upton Court parkrun
Event number 327
6th April 2019

Congratulations to Haddi Browne and Kally Chana who both joined the 50 Club this week. They are now eligible for the red 50 parkrun T-shirt.

The week's APTOTW (Aesthetically Pleasing Time Of The Week) goes to first time visitor Marius Daniel HUTCHESON who ran a palindromic 20:02.

Can I remind everyone that there is a parkrun rule that children under the age of 11 must be within arm's reach of a parent, guardian or designated adult of the parent's choice at all times.

Can I also remind you that barcodes will only be accepted for scanning if they are printed, either on paper or the silicone bands/plastic cards that are available to purchase. We will not accept barcodes on mobile phones or other electronic devices. If you need to print out your barcode, you will find the link included in your results email or on the weekly newletter email. This may also be a good time to ensure that your new barcode has your ICE (In Case of Emergency) contact details on them too.

Please note that due to an event taking place in the Rugby Club this coming Saturday, we will not have access to the main interior rooms in the clubhouse. We will have access to the toilets only, and Joanne will set up her tea/coffee-making facilities outside on the covered verandah. Scanning will also take place outside.

If you follow parkrun UK on Facebook or Twitter, you will know that each week they feature a parkrun and profile it. Keep an eye out over the next week or so, as you may recognise the parkrun as being a familiar one!

Here are the full stats for last Saturday;
