Warwick parkrun Event#162. November 12th, 2016


Well a warmer morning for our 54 parkrunners, and a snappy father duck, did not stop 4 of you achieving PBs. Congratulations Ben, Melissa, Grant and Fiona.

Thankyou to Rachel, Jeff, Len, Annie and Kate for volunteering. We still have some roles that need filling for next week so if you are free, let us know.

Thankyou to Josh for stepping up to run with a very fast junior. We certainly appreciated it, as I'm sure did Ben.

Congratulations to Joe on your 50th parkrun, and to Judi, our parkrunner of the month for October.

Enjoy your weekend. We look forward to seeing you all out enjoying parkrun with us again next Saturday. #freeandalwayswillbe
