New course record!

Aveley parkrun
Event number 115
10th October 2015

Matt Smith celebrated his 50th parkrun in style by breaking the course record with a time of 15:29 - congratulations Matt!

We again had fresh fruit courtesy of Aveley IGA - it was very much appreciated and went down well as it was warm out there!

Next week we aim to have pacers - so if you have been chasing a parkrun PB and would like some help - this Saturday (17th) could be your chance. We are also looking for people that will offer to pace - so please let us know if you are interested

Our proposed children's week parkrun on 24th October is promising to be a great day - our aim is for the children to 'run the parkrun' and take on all the volunteer roles with only limited assistance from the run director. The roster is filling up nicely but there are still slots left - so if you are keen to help, please let us know
