The first York Knavesmire parkrun of 2022 went off with a bang (not literally) with a fantastic group of GoodGym-ers taking on some of the parkrun volunteer roles. Nick was the Run Director and kept us all organised; Angela and I were timekeeping; Jane was backup timekeeper (data callibration); Mitch was handing out tokens; Jenna and Cara were barcode scanning; Tay and Hayden were funnel managing; Laura was number checking (unscannables); Michal and Maddy were marshalls; Nicky and Ed were pacing and Vicky and Debs were our fantastically dressed tail walkers. It was great to see lots of familiar faces, including our very own ex-York GG-er Becky Mo who was visiting from Prague! We were grateful for the warm temperature and a welcome bit of sunshine for a change, although the Knavesmire provided it's usual stiff breeze. After just over an hour all 564 participants had had their New Year's day parkrun fix and were off to enjoy the rest of their day, with several of the group off to another task - well done to them!
