It's our birthday show! We celebrate with a small cupcake each, a single candle, a jaunty party hat and a party horn.

Nicola was at Leeds parkrun (again!) and whilst listening to Red Red Wine on her iPod Shuffle, figured she'd done 270 laps of that course. It made her pine for new parkruns to mix it up. Danny went to Oxford parkrun after an EPIC journey and as a result learnt about Sri Chinmoy. The pair also bring you news about amazing volunteers, Grandad PSH and even a pinch of innuendo.

There was a smackdown at a parkrun this Saturday! Oh yes, Nicola "the Huddersfield Bunny" Forwood vs Jessica and Peary the Bear Burdon had a little race and Jessica and Peary won in a sprint finish! Meanwhile Martin Yelling may have finished ahead of Danny at Poole parkrun but that is of no interest to anyone. They also bring you the Volunteer Interview about the 10 metre/50 metre Bushy funnel and they touch upon Gary Donald's first place finish as an MWC.

A jam packed show for you this week. Danny scores a victory in the parkrun attendance bet, Nicola tells us all about her parkrunday at Leeds parkrun with Sharron Davies, David Moorcroft, John Inverdale and the Brownlee Brothers. As part of the Join In campaign they were there to showcase parkrun and as a result Nicola managed to get her mitts on the Brownlees Olympic medals. Danny did a "Darby" at Fritton Lake parkrun even though they have course direction arrows and they interview the first ever parkrunner to complete 100 different parkruns, Chris Cowell. There's also news of marriages, proposals and running backwards.
