Huge Congratulations to all those embarking on their parkrun journey with their first official event:

James HAMMOND, Jane MACNAUGHTON, Katherine HILL, Lauren SUSMAN, Bobby TANSER, Isabelle SEAL, Oliver WHITE, Dominic FLYNN, Sheree HILL

And congratulations to Matthew BAILEY, Graham GOOD and Ruth WEBER who all ran their 50th parkruns this weekend! We only found out about Matthew in advance so I'm afraid I can't tell you too much about Ruth or Graham (except that they are clearly both awesome parkrunners!) but Matthew (member of Cleobury Mortimer Running CLUB) ran with his son Toby in the buggy and tells us he got a 'buggy PB' so what a brilliant way to celebrate the occasion!

If you are celebrating a milestone run with us - don't be shy and let us know please! Otherwise we don't find out until after the results are published and can't congratulate you in person.

We also had a new Age category record broken in the mud this weekend - well done to Patrick ALDERSON who stormed the course in 19:25 to capture the ACR VM50-54! Much deserved!


Thank you one and all and see you next time!
Andie :)
