Event #207, 28th December 2019.

parkrun day

- with apologies to U2

All is quiet for the pre run briefing
The world of parkrun gets underway
I want to run with you
But no, the RD has to look out for you
Nothing changes on parkrun day
On parkrun day

I will run with you again
I will run with you again

Under a grey and blustery sky
A crowd has gathered in black and white
The RD notes are getting blown away
The milestones says, says
Its true, its true
Wally Moore will get his 50th parkrun
We will celebrate with a sweet or two

I,I will run with you again
I,I will run with you again

Ah, the first timers are told this is parkrun day
Saturday for ever known as parkrun day
I will run with you again
I will run with you again

And so we’re told to volunteer again
because volunteers make parkrun run
I know its time to put name down again,
1 in 10 is all we need for parkrun.

Nothing changes 

On parkrun day
On parkrun day
On parkrun day
