Event #301 – 7/1/17

For many this was the first parkrun of the year. In the morning parkrun announced they had taken 10,002 new enrolments in one day, so we expected a few new faces. In the end we had 165 runners with 27 first timers. Maybe more because 10 others forgot barcodes or didn't have time to print them off. We did lose 4 finish tokens.
REMINDER, please don't take the finish tokens home as we use them each week. We can replace them but it does take time, thanks. If you have them please return them. You wont be the first or the last.
