The sun shone brightly again for parkrun this week which saw 94 people come along to run, jog or walk the course.
We met lots of new people this week too, with 43 people being new to the forest, including Mark Lamb who took finish token #1.
We said happy birthday to Jenni Tomkinson from Brueton parkrun who joined us with along with her husband for a bit of parkrun tourism. I'm sure Jenni loved the chorus of happy birthday that rang out through the forest as she completed her 237th parkrun.
There were 15 personal bests achieved this week! Shout out to Catriona Maison who knocked nearly 2 mins of her time while Tom Dunlop who finished 4th shaved another 4 seconds from his previous best time - it seems 4 is a lucky number for Tom!
Chris Clarke joined the parkrun family by completing his first ever parkrun - congratulations!
Thanks very much to this week's volunteers without whom parkrun just wouldn't happen:
Peter John BATTRICK • Jamielee JOHNSTON • Hazel DAVIES • Jo GRUCHY • Anthony GAGG • Gail JAZMIK • Siobhan GASCOIGNE • Sonia DRYDEN • Brendan CARLIN • Sally BURCHALL • Tony DUNCAN • Stephen SINGLETON
Here we have a picture of Gail who was the tail walker this week and Jamielee who sorted the finish tokens - both first timers to the forest and it was lovely of you both to volunteer. Jamielee completed her 99th parkrun - best of luck for next week which will see Jamielee hit triple figures!
