Sale parkrun #93 - 21st January 2017
What a fantastic morning it was for the penultimate January parkrun! 133 finishers, 18 registered first timers (and probably half as many again who weren't registered) and lots of families enjoying perfect conditions by the lake.
We also had a blushing Bride to Be in Stephanie Bullen, and Dusty the Dog of Honour! Goodluck for your wedding Steph from all your friends at Sale parkrun and we look forward to seeing you again soon with an updated 'Mrs' barcode....
Congratulations to Jo McCubbin who celebrated her 50th parkrun - welcome to the club, Jo!
With a bumper field, our key box was filled to capacity and there was such a buzz around the Soundshell! So much so that it was hard to hear the 'beep' of the barcode scanner at times. Please, if you had your barcode scanned but can't see your name in the results send us a message.
A huge thank you to our wonderful volunteers and to those who put their names down for the weeks ahead. Do check out the wonderful photos from Allister Berryman and Sarah O'Brien. Thinking of helping out? Check out the future volunteer roster to see where the gaps are. I won't be there this week as I'm off to Churchill to help celebrate their 1st birthday. Instead I'll leave you in the very capable hands of Antho to help start your weekend in the best way possible! Have a great week and don't forget - if you like what we do, tell your friends ~ RD Glenn
