It has been quite a month for parkrun in Birmingham, with most events resuming 4 weeks ago, the inaugural Woodgate Valley last week and the first parkrun at Edgbaston Reservoir that two of us volunteered at today. Liam has been involved with organising this parkrun and getting it ready to start, and he was timekeeping today on the app. I was also using the parkrun volunteer app to scan barcodes for finishers at the end of the run. We were joined by Miriam and Balal who took part in the run and it went well with all runners enjoying the picturesque surroundings.

Across the city, after two weeks of training, Naneesh and Bal set up the course at Perry Hall, and as you can see in the pictures, the cones were laid out in exquisitely straight lines. I definitely couldn't have done better myself.
