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!

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!

A huge CONGRATULATIONS must go to William RICHARDSON yet again for lowering his own Course Record by another few seconds to make it 15:35!! This time also saw him claim the overall Age Graded Course Record for Wyre Forest parkrun with a percentage of 83.64. Absolutely astounding pace - this is 5.01 minutes per mile!!! Which is why we didn't get any photographs of Will in action I'm afraid..!

And well done to Philip JONES who completed his milestone 50th parkrun with us this week. Great commitment Phil.

We were also joined by over 35 members and supporters of Cleobury Mortimer Running Club who completed the parkrun as part of their club's event calendar and championship. Thank you to them all for their continued support of Wyre Forest parkrun and for staying to cheer everyone at the finish line!

CMRC at parkrun

Ellen POWELL remarked that "Wyre Forest parkrun has the best finish line supporters. Are they cheering because you've just ran a parkrun or because you're still alive at the top of heart attack hill"!! Both Ellen! We think everyone deserves a big cheer for their efforts.

And Bryony POYNER said "Fantastic finish line support today - thank you all!"

Thank you for all your lovely comments this week!

Sadly, due to a change in the terms of use with Flickr - we can no longer add photographs to our run report in the old way. And our Flickr account will soon be closing. If you wish to download any photographs from this account please do it now as they will be deleted soon.

We should hopefully have a new way of sharing photographs with you on its way soon and I will of course let you know the details when I have them.

See you next time!
