A bunch of GG Yorkies braved the very cold winds 💨 down at the Knavesmire this morning. At least the track was dry and the ground fairly firm today.

We covered various roles from pacing, timekeeping and scanning to funnel managing and marshalling - even Fergs the dog 🐶 helped and we were all very jealous of Amy's big coat!

Just over 700 people took part today and it wouldn't have been possible without our valiant volunteers. If anyone would like to volunteer in future weeks then email York parkrun at york@parkrun.com. The future roster can be seen here https://www.parkrun.org.uk/york/futureroster/
