Run Report Event number 24

Wilson Botanic parkrun
Event number 24
4th February 2017

An absolutely perfect morning greeted runners on Saturday for our 24th Event.  Having had a record number the week before (with the exception of our launch) we again had great numbers.

As you may be aware we experienced a Barcode Scanner Malfunction which caused a delay to posting your results.  Thanks to everyone who contacted us via email and Facebook with their position and Barcode.  If you still haven't received your results then please email us or message on Facebook.

We are pleased to advise that we now have a replacement Barcode Scanner for this weekend and therefore expect everything to return to normal.

Thanks to this week's volunteers
Anthony BONHAM • James BENNETT • Julie MCKENNA • Lisa WAKELIN • Mark BARRETT • Paul SMITH

We are always looking for volunteers to assist in the running of each weekly event. Volunteering is easy and a great way to meet other like minded people. Look out for our volunteer roster next time you have your barcode scanned or email us via the link here.
