Extra thanks to them on what turned out to be a very soggy morning!!

Don't forget that without volunteers there is no parkrun so please do your bit and take your turn to keep your local event going and let the regulars take a morning off! Email wyreforest@parkrun.com to add your name to our roster. Thank you.

Our volunteer shout out this week goes to Jake GOOD who completed his 25th stint as a volunteer at last week's Wyre Forest junior parkrun and helped us out this week. Thank you very much Jake!

The juniors need lots of marshals to maintain supervision and sight of the whole course and I know they'd love to hear from you if you can spare an hour. The junior run is 2km so it's generally all done by 9:25am! If you can't bare to give up a Saturday parkrun how about helping on a Sunday?? Their email address is wyreforestjuniors@parkrun.com. Cheers!!
