The weather conditions were perfect as 429 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 60 were first-timers to Worthing.  The PB Bell was ringing today as 94 of you recorded new Personal Bests, great work.  There were 47 different running clubs that took part this morning.  We had a visit this week from the Foxy Ladies Running Club. It is always good to see you, and we certainly heard you !

We often shine the spotlight on one of our volunteer roles, and this week, we want to talk about the 'Event Day Course Check'.   The Event Day Course Check involves checking the entire route is safe to use on the day.  We often struggle to find someone to do this role, which means that the Run Director does it.  If you walk, cycle or run from George V, then you can easily earn a volunteer credit before you even run.

Finally, the parkrun report is never complete without thoughts from Uncle Ramjam this week chasing fame....
