Event number 209
14th September 2019

Today's run report is written by Sandra HOWARD. Thanks Sandra.

Wyre Forest parkrun number 209 saw 226 parkrunners cross the finishing line today, many celebrating a PB. Well done to you all and hope you rang the PB bell! Young Natasha Rowley gained her milestone of 10 parkruns today - well done.

Today saw some starting their parkrun journey, welcome to parkrun and well done each, hope that we will see you again very soon.


Parkrun cannot happen without a weekly team of volunteers who give up their time to allow parkrun to be a safe and free event.

Please volunteer especially if you have not done so yet. There is loads of support and various roles that need to be filled each week with some allowing you to run and volunteer on the same event,so please do volunteer- it’s putting something back. The future rosters are available to view, along with a role description and how to contact the team on our web page.

One special volunteer is Lindsay Tillsley. Today Lindsay was awarded Volunteer of the Year Award. Many thanks for all your time. A well deserved award.

Looking forward to seeing you next week for another parkrun in the beautiful Wyre Forest.
