๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ–ค Wow – what a sensational start to the new month! We are so close to hitting that 1,000 target! 953 Vegan Runners attended 406 different parkruns on this first event of June. 890 gained a finish token and we had over 63 wonderful volunteers. ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŽ‰ย

Thatโ€™s it for this weekโ€™s report! Iโ€™ll post the PBs tomorrow. Enjoy the sunshine! Check our mid-week poll on our facebook page so you can see where meetups will be happening next week. Can we hit the thousand-mark next Saturday? Of course we can! See you there โ€“ even if you canโ€™t run due to an accident with a bicycle or whatever your reason โ€“ volunteering will still get you scanned. Remember to bring a buff if youโ€™ll be wearing a volunteerโ€™s tabard (which will hide your t-shirt). Have a great week!ย
