I wanted to thank the volunteers again for helping out and mention that without them we wouldn't be able to have the event take place every week. They are our heroes who make parkrun happen!
Another thanks goes to those who came up on the morning to ask if they could help out, as we were a little stuck for volunteers. So if you want to help out but also run, there are certain roles which allow you to do that. Get in touch with us through facebook or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the St Annes parkrun Results Page.
