Welcome to the 185th Wyre Forest parkrun run report! This week 262 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 46 were first timers and 51 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 26 different clubs took part.

This week we were short of a few volunteers. Luckily a couple of people came forward on Saturday morning and gave up their runs so everyone else could have theirs. Please don't look at the roster and assume it is full - often the volunteers are under 18 and need supervision, so the roster may not be as full as it looks. If you are yet to volunteer - please get in touch!
