Five Goodgymers went along to Worthing parkrun this morning to volunteer, promoting parkrun's ambition to create a happier & healthier planet and GoodGym's contribution to that too!

John was on set up duty, Belinda took responsibility for co-ordinating the volunteers, Sue marshalled out on the promenade and Sarah & Ryan helped with post event close meaning by 10.15 there was no sign parkrun had even been there!

Special mention also to Barbara who had planned to be volunteering as a marshal but wasn't feeling too well today - get well soon Barbara! A mention also to honorary Goodgymer Paul's John who was barcode scanning today whilst Paul ran. Looking forwarded to celebrating your 100 running milestones at next week's parkrun.

It proved to be an unforgettable event, beautiful sunny & calm conditions meant 90 of the 545 participants got a new PB, most notably the first male finisher who also got a new course record of 14:42 for the 5k run. This runner previously held the course record jointly with Olympian Jake Wightman but today he edged ahead by a second!
