the parkrun show

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.
