Was this the lull before the storm?  A large number of runners were in the forest today perhaps they were anticipating severe weather tomorrow?  There was also an enormous sea of red as local running group Cleobury Mortimer Running Club were using Wyre Forest parkrun as their first championship race/run of 2020.

The Run Director for today was David STARKIE who did a brilliant job of ensuring the run went smoothly and that the army of volunteers were where they should be. It was lovely to welcome tourists’ from Churchfields, St Albans and Trelissick parkruns.  We hope you enjoyed our parkrun.

Today there were several people who achieved milestones.  Katherine EVANS who has now volunteered 25 times; Fiona CLARKE who not only celebrated her 50th parkrun today but also achieved a (non-assisted!) PB. Well done Fiona.  Finally, Lindsay PULLEY who ran his 280th parkrun today.  Lindsay is a regular runner at Wyre Forest parkrun (and also a member of CMRC).  He has had an amazing running history and has even represented England as a veteran runner.  So to Katherine, Fiona and Lindsay well done on your amazing achievements from all at parkrun.

Today, 309 runners took part, which included 25 runners who completed their first ever parkrun.  We hope you enjoyed your run and that you will be back again in the near future. There were also 62 runners who achieved PB’s today (at least 15 of these were from CMRC) and CMRC made up almost 20% of the runners.  There was some really awesome running by everyone.

At Wyre Forest parkrun we are extremely fortunate to have a team of regular volunteers who turn up to support the runners.  Without these unsung heroes parkrun would not take place. If you have yet to volunteer, or are interested in finding out further information please look at the Wyre Forest parkrun web page, the link is below. Alternatively, speak to any of the volunteers next time you are at the event.  We are only too happy to help.

Congratulations to our lovely Debbie NEWBOULD on her 50th parkrun (so sorry we didn't get a photo of you Debbie!)

Before I go, can I just remind everyone not to take our finish tokens home! We have lost so many now that the replacements are not scanning properly and we will need to purchase a new set soon, at cost to us. If you see anyone pocketing a token please remind them that it needs to be returned thank you.

See you all next time!
