5th October – Going Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

"We all know someone" who's been affected by Breast Cancer. So many of our wonderful friends and family have had it. 3 people in my family have all had the horrible diagnosis.

Catching it early helps you with the best outcome and recovery. So after being contacted by the Breast Cancer Unit at Worcester we have decided to go PINK for the parkrun on the 5th October. Grab a PINK shirt, shorts (rare), socks, headband, shoes, ribbons, hat, whatever you want...anything goes (so long as its decent).

Hope to see you at parkrun this week "in ya PINK", its just a bit of fun no fund raising we just want folks to know what to look for.



Christmas at Worcester parkrun 2015

Merry Christmas from all the Worcester parkrun Team.

Over Christmas and New Year we will be having some extra events, on Christmas Day and New Years Day, as well as our usual runs on Saturday. So 25th, 26th, 1st (10:00 start) and 2nd. The events will start at 09:00 as normal except the New Years Day parkrun that will start at 10:00.

It'll be great to have the extra events meaning you put in extra runs or if away have the opportunity to catch a special event.

One question I have been asked is about toiled facilities and they will be open for all events. The cafe will be closed on Christmas Day so bring your own "beverages".

This will mean we need lots of volunteers to run the event so if you can help please email worcesteroffice@parkrun.com

Incident at Last Weeks Run

At last weeks parkrun a runner was spoken to in such an inappropriate manner that it warranted calling the police to record the matter. The person spoken too is fine. At this stage it is uncertain who the person was who made the comments. It is unlikely they were involved with the parkrun, and not related to any of the recent events around the area based on the description.

We want to make sure everyone has an enjoyable run and one idiot does not spoil it for everyone who takes part. So we shall be keeping a sharp eye out for this person and the police have offered to come along too. We thank them for their support and all the great parkrunners who come each week without any fuss to enjoy a free run.

If anyone saw anything that may help identify the person please contact PC Ed Shotton 01905 744209.

Christmas and New Year at Worcester parkrun

I'm sure that many of you already have planned or planning where you will be on Christmas and New Year. At Worcester parkrun the team are able to offer you an extra parkrun on New Years Day, that's a Thursday. The event will start a little later than normal, at 9:30 so you can have a bit of an extra rest.
We will be having our normal runs on the Saturday so our runs will be on 20th, 27th, 1st and 3rd.
Results count for the league and your t-shirt Clubs.
We hope you can join us.

3rd Anniversary 21st June 2014

Its our 3rd Anniversary so it time to congratulate and thanks a few folks this weekend and celebrate a year of Worcester parkrun and you fabulous people.

Amendment: After last nights result we understand football is a "funny old game" so fancy dress is "ANYTHING GOES", whatever makes you smile!!!

Original Message:
Our Fancy Dress coordinator (Nichola) has called World Cup theme, so choose your team colours, or national iconic costume, hat or accessory. Come on down. Perhaps England-White (perhaps with a face painted cross like Roodie), Brazil-Yellow in Copacabana Beach shorts, Spain Red (Sombrero optional), Italy-Blue (no Gondola's please), Holland-Orange (and tulips) all stereotypes welcome..its just a bit of fun not compulsory.

As you all know parkrun is for free so we have to make our own party, if you want to bake a cake to celebrate that would be great to share with your fellow parkrunners.

Bring some balloons, do whatever makes a party a party for you!

See you there,

Richard, Nichola, Maddie, Sally, James and Michael
Worcester parkrun Team

We have woken up to a "Big" Thunderstorm and so will be monitoring the weather and hopefully it will improve. A bit of water is fine, if it still thunder and lightening we will make the decision. We will let you know as soon as possible, here, on facebook and twitter.

I am sure you appreciate we have runners and volunteers safety always as our 1st priority.
