Run Report 7 August 2021

Barry Curtis parkrun
Event number 405
7th August 2021

Wet, cold, windy, slippery.... a few words to describe today's event. We had 101 brave people run, jog and walk our course today. Two people completed their very first parkrun. It wasn't the best conditions to do it in so good on you, and we hope to see you again soon.

We had visitors from Millwater parkrun and I believe one of them had a fall. We hope that you're not too sore - if you could email us to let us know how you are, that would be great.

Anna achieved a PB today - a really good achievement, given the weather. Another great achievement was Chris completing his 200th parkrun - well done!

Congratulations to Grant and Emily on the Sequel Coffee vouchers. Sequel kindly gives us vouchers to thank some of our volunteers each week. We meet there for our post-parkrun get together and they make great coffees and food. Everyone is welcome to come along and get to know a few fellow parkrunners.

A massive thank you to our volunteers:

Laurie WILSON • Sulaiman HARTLEY • Karen ROUT • Grant LINCOLN • Ray FREEMAN • Hayes FREEMAN • Vanessa FERNANDES • Ronald LOBJOIT • Keegan KOKKE • Jono WILLIS • Maria SHALLARD • Rebekah SHALLARD • Keira SHALLARD • Andrew SHALLARD • Leesa BATHGATE • Abbie LAW • Emily WILLIS

We are thankful for your help today and your willingness to give up your time to make our event run smoothly. If you'd like to give volunteering a go, but you're a bit unsure about it, have a chat to Ray, or send us an email. Full training will be given.

Finally, thank you to our sponsor, The Athlete's Foot. With their support, our event remains free and accessible to anyone who wants to come along.
