Star Wars parkrun Day 04.05.24

💚🖤  May the fourth be with you! And VRs were certainly out in force on this first parkrun of May. We had 896 members representing our wonderful club at 391 different parkrun events. 837 gained a finish token and we had over 60 wonderful volunteers. That’s so close to 900 – let’s smash that barrier next week!
