parkrun rolls around once more, so what were we all up to last weekend as parkrun welcomed their five millionth unique finisher? ๐Ÿฅณ

At Conkers, Ian Bolton led 20 Ivanhoes to the finish funnel after the 5K along the trails finishing bang on 20 minutes in 12th place. Currently in incredible form, Jordan Cope followed, the boys separated by just one place, and was awarded a super PB in a time of 20:26, a fabulous three PBs from his last three visits to Conkers parkrun. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

A total of 14 different parkruns were covered by members this week, so ๐Ÿฅ roll please for our tourists… ๐Ÿš˜

Andy, Chris, Mindy, Laura and Kenny took a trip to Nottingham ๐Ÿน for Forest Rec parkrun, a course PB for Chris and a first time visit for the rest of the clan. The hills are worth it for the post run café. ๐Ÿง

The Jeyes were at Wickford Memorial parkrun, both topping their age category ๐Ÿ† and Sally achieving the highest WAVA score and a new age category record in 28:05. The Blands were at Medina parkrun, the parkrun renowned for moving around the Isle of Wight ๐Ÿ.
