This morning, a band of plucky runners met up to help out at Burgess parkrun.

Despite the intense weather, some sort of popular sports game, two other enticing parkrun tasks, and the idea of a lovely lie in, we made it out to help out with the morning's run. We filled a range of positions, including finish funnel support, timekeeping, barcode scanning and marshalling.

Over 300 people absolutely smashed it and started their mornings with a beautiful 5000 meters of rain and glory, and we were all chuffed to bits to help them achieve that. We all headed off for the rest of our days, including rugby watching, brunches, extra missions, racing and fireworks - all well deserved!
