Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 158
22nd September 2018

This week's run report is brought to us by the lovely Sandra HOWARD, thank you Sandra!

Today was event 158 of the Wyre Forest Parkrun. The rain stayed away this morning as 210 of us passed through the finishing line to collect our token after completing our morning parkrun. For some this was their very first parkrun or their first visit to Wyre Forest as parkrun tourists. Welcome to you all and hope that you enjoyed the beautiful Wyre Forest parkrun. We hope to see some of you again soon.


Here are those first timers:


Well done everyone!

Today Mark REAVES celebrated achieving his 100th parkrun milestone and Gill JONES achieved her 50th parkrun milestone. Well done also to Esther LUPTON on achieving her 10th parkrun milestone. Well done to all who achieved their own parkrun PB’s today- it always gives you a lift!
