Event number 263
22nd July 2017
Many thanks to you hardy lot who came along in the rain this morning and braved the horrendously muddy course! A warm (wet) welcome to our local first timers and also great to have parkrun tourists from Ireland and Cape Town, South Africa! Martin Kelly of Dublin has an age grade course record today too!
Shout out to Jason Ashworth who was a first timer at Cornwall Park today and ran his 100th parkrun, congratulations Jason! (you should have let us know before!)
Reminder alert: Next week is our 5th anniversary! It's a 5 year old theme so come dressed in party hats and party tutus or of course anything you fancy! We'll have some spot prizes, cake, lollies and of course a great 5k parkrun!
This week 81 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 10 were first timers and 5 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 11 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 12 volunteers: Thank you so much for coming to help out in pretty awful conditions - you're all stars!
There were two personal barcodes handed in today which must have fallen out of pockets - Melissa Taylor and Peter Douglas-Bell, you can pick them up next time you run.

parkrun cannot operate without the assistance of volunteers. We encourage parkrunners to volunteer three times a year or more of course, if you wish. If you can’t run due to an injury or have a race on a Sunday and want a rest day, come along and volunteer instead, it’s easy, fun and very rewarding! We’d welcome your help. Go onto the Cornwall parkrun webpage and email email@example.com to register your availability and which Saturday you can volunteer.
If you would like to run and volunteer you can do an earlier ‘freedom’ run and for those who enjoy having a say – write the run report for the website one week! Anyone wishing to volunteer their talents as a photographer is most welcome too.
