15/09/2018 Wyre Forest parkrun – Florence’s run report

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 157
15th September 2018

Thank you to junior parkrunner Florence HOWARD for another fab run report!

Today 180 people ran (some with dogs) and 36 volunteers made it possible for the 180 people to run! Ashley FAWKE came running past us volunteers first!


Me and my mum marshalled at the last kilometer with the cowbell. I've definitely got a headache now! Some dogs were interested in the bell other not quite. Today there was a nice flow of runners all the way through.


Mason who's 4 and a half tail walked with his Nan. He rang my cowbell all the way back, just so nobody forgot about us!!!


It was a lovely morning in the forest especially for the parkrun! The birds all singing when we reached our marshall post. We cheered all you runners on for the very last kilometre!!! If you haven't volunteered lately put your name down now on the roster! Every week we have our lovely Marshalls and all our other volunteers who make the parkrun possible!
