Event #4 – October 5th 2019

This week, Byxbee parkrun welcomed 48 runners, walkers and joggers, assisted by 10 volunteers. There were plenty of cheers, smiles and familiar faces!

Congratulations to Heather Birchall, who stepped up to be Run Director for the first time this week! As always, we welcome anyone who would like to join us in any volunteer role, so if you're interested in helping out on Saturday, or a bigger role by joining the core team, simply email us at byxbee@parkrun.com and we will find the perfect role for you!

There was plenty to celebrate in the parkrun community this week. Bushy parkrun celebrated their 15th anniversary, but more importantly, parkrun USA welcomed two new parkruns to the family, bringing the total number of parkruns across the country to 40.

So this week we give a hearty welcome and congratulations to Northside Beltline parkrun in Atlanta, GA, and also Ohio and Erie Canal Reservation parkrun in Cleveland, OH!

Your parkrun barcode will work at any parkrun event in the USA, Canada and anywhere else you travel in the world.
