A very cool morning this Saturday for 85 Wagga parkrunners, and whilst we were frosty or snowing, it was enough for one of our barcode scanners phones to freeze loosing the data! Thankfully it seems that we have fixed most of the results with the help of social media, however if you have NOT been sent an email regarding this weeks results for Wagga parkrun, send us a message with what position you were and your barcode and we will get it sorted.
