And our run report is written by one of those 252 - the lovely Sandra HOWARD. Thanks Sandra, take it away..

The sun shone for us all as we ran in the beautiful Wyre Forest for the 206th  Wyre Forest parkrun.   Next week is our fourth Birthday.  To celebrate the theme is wear RED. It will be fabulous to see a sea of red though the Forest next week. Especially looking forward to seeing a red dress or two on the course!  

A huge thank you to our Run Director this morning and his team of volunteers who make parkrun possible each week. 

If it’s not something you have done before give it a go.  There are various jobs, some allow you to run and volunteer but we need volunteers to keep parkrun going.

Imogen JONES celebrated her 100th parkrun today  with a PB-well done.  Well done each runner over the finish line.  It doesn’t matter if you were the fastest or one of the slowest - you are a park runner. 

We welcomed a few tourists and first timers today to Wyre Forest-  hope you liked our course and we see you again.  

Thanks again to all you give up their time to allow parkrun to take park each week, especially those well past their 25 volunteer badge.   

See you next week dressed in red.

David MORE • Julie GOLDS • Mark WALLACE • Andrea FORD • Nicky ALWAY • Jake GOOD • Fiona CLARKE • Michael GAUNT • Katy BROOME • Carole EVANS • Andy MORGAN • Graeme ANDERSON • Leeanne ANDERSON • John FRANCIS • Tony COLCLOUGH • Katie COLCLOUGH • Olwen FIELD • David ALLISTON • Ruth ALLISTON • Stuart BIRD • Daren JACKSON • Pauline SMITH • Sandra HOWARD • Katherine EVANS • Steve REDDING • Debbie REDDING • Alan KIMBER • Deana KIMBER

Congratulations also to juniors Griff G and Harrison GWILLIAM who both ran their 10th parkruns with us today! Well done boys.

As Sandra said - next week is our 4th Birthday!! Where did that go?? The theme is a nice simple 'red' theme. So pop something red on instead of (or alongside) your usual parkrun kit and don't forget to bring cake if you can!!

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.
