We received visitors from Sandwell Valley, Kendal, Suffolk, Cannock and Perry Hall!

Thank you to tourist Darren for the following feedback:

"Was across here from Suffolk this weekend with my wife and we took part in your event.

Just wanted to say what a cracking park run you all do, much harder course than our flat one at Great Cornard, but a beautiful ,well run, friendly, event.

Thank you."

Cheers Darren, always good to hear great things about our event!

Congratulations to the totally inspirational Lindsay PULLEY who bettered his own Age Category record for VM80-84 this week with a cracking time of 32:46. Lindsay is our oldest parkrunner and has now completed a whopping 236 parkruns. What a star!



The following parkrunners achieved milestone recognition this week - welcome to the 50 club Sarah CLARK and junior Amaya MOORE.


We lost more finish tokens again this week (sad face). So please, please, please don't take our tokens home with you. If you have any of our finish tokens we would really like them back - just drop them in a bucket or hand to a volunteer who will be most grateful, thank you.


And very importantly - don't forget your barcode! And if you do, please do not ask any of our volunteers to manually enter your result as I'm afraid the answer will always be 'no'. Put a spare in your car, kit bag, mobile phone case or under your shoe insole now... just don't forget to bring it!

Thank you all, see you next time!
