Welcome to the fourteen new parkruns that we have introduced in the last two weeks.

Last week we saw Ayr parkrun, Kesgrave parkrun, Wakefield Thornes parkrun and Torridge junior parkrun introduced in the UK while South Africa said hello to Middelberg parkrun. Our friends in New Zealand started their seventh event Millwater parkrun while Australia introduced their 95th event Pakenham parkrun. Welcome to the 941 runners and 113 volunteers who participated at these new events, well done and congratulations on a great start.

This week we welcome Banbury parkrun in the UK, Grahamstown parkrun in South Africa, Ryazan Central parkrun in Russia, Bowral parkrun and Tamworth parkrun in Australia and Ipswich junior parkrun and Temple Newsham junior parkrun which takes our tally of junior parkruns to 26.

Its been an exciting week with the introduction of the parkrun store and our 10th anniversary tee shirt. Thanks to every person who has showed their support for parkrun by purchasing an item. All proceeds are reinvested in parkrun and go towards sustaining our events and growing the family.

Have a great parkrun weekend.
