    The course is normally around Lodmoor Country Park although during the winter in wet conditions an alternative course along Weymouth seafront is used. Please visit website to see current situation …

    Weymouth parkrun

    The results are in, and I'd just like to thank all the volunteers, but particularly all the guys in the finish area for doing an absolutely A-MAZ-ING job at our busiest ever parkrun. operational problems meant that about 22 time records are missing 501-522, so if you are in that window and know your time, please let me know,

    So our new record is 696 runners, exactly 200 more than our previous best. There were 128 first timers and 66 new PBs.

    You were all great, but I will give a special mention to course record holder Phil Wicks and former course record holder Emily Wicks. I believe they used to hold the record as the fastest husband and wife combined time for the London Marathon ... on the subject of which ... I shall not be at Weymouth parkrun next week ๐Ÿ™‚

    In my absence I hope you have the time of your lives!

    Grand job Keith. We need Steve to post his video of your busking in the pub garden ๐Ÿ˜Š Oh and good luck next week x

    So the epitaph would read something like, โ€œKeith, a great results processor who took on the 700 beast and gallantly wonโ€. Well done Keith, a sterling effort with less than the usual info. The missing 501-522 placing would concur with mine and Sallyโ€™s handing over of the sacred stopwatch! Oh well, we all live to fight another day.

    Fabulous work guys ... thank you from one of your extra tourists today. Great support from all the volunteers. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Well done to all in the finish area, I imagine it got a bit hairy at times today. Fab job Keith and good luck for next week ๐Ÿ‘

    Well done Keith for pulling that together!! Tough job for anyone. Have a great run next week it'll be a breeze compared to Parkrun results this week!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ xx

    Well done Keith and all the amazing volunteers this week. What an incredible number ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Sorry we missed it, but we were tourists at Haldon Forest parkrun

    Amazing job Keith. That was a tough job today.

    Great job Keith it was a tough one ๐Ÿ‘

    Good luck next week Keith Pullen ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    Wow so close to that 700 mark and so unexpectedly! Well done all for managing that out of the blue ๐Ÿ™‚

    A huge thank you to all of todayโ€™s volunteers, you did an amazing job with so many runners. Weโ€™ve been hoping for 500 for a while but 700 certainly tested us to the limits. Well done to RD Mike who remained calm on the surface at least and to Keith whoโ€™s processing results.
    Enjoy the sunshine and the Easter break

    Amazing!! Well done everyone! X

    Fantastic turnout, well done everyone.

    Wow 700 is amazing

    Amazing numbers and what a lovely course! Came down from Liverpool and really enjoyed it. A big well done everyone;

    Thanks to all our volunteers and organisers - another fab event, well done. Certainly was busy!

    Thank you all, as someone who has never dared brave a park run before (even though I walked it) I want to thank you for creating an atmosphere that gave me the confidence to even do that.

    Thank you! Great Parkrun!!

    Thanks to all the volunteers Not an easy job keeping that number of runners in order!

    Amazing and good fun xx

    Have a wonderful Easter all you runners.love from the u.s.

    Thank you to everyone who volunteered today - appreciate it! Great to see so many fellow participants ๐Ÿ˜Š

    How amazing 700 glad I wasnโ€™t on token sorting today!! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

    Well done everybody.

    700!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ amazing. Well done weymouth parkrun.

    Loved it today, weโ€™re regular visitors from Whiteley, Hampshire and always enjoy the welcome at Weymouth. Thank you, great parkrun!

    Just WOW!! Well done everyone! ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ

    Well done everyone, thatโ€™s a huge amount of runners.

    700+ runners... must have been the thought of free chocolate ๐Ÿ™‚ Fantastic volunteers as always. Top work everyone. Along with #dfyb, #dontturnlobsterred should be the next Weymouth parkrun tagline ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Wow! Well done everyone, sorry I missed it

    Thanks guys. Youโ€™re awesome!

    Well done everyone especially the volunteers, sorry I missed it.

    Itโ€™s was brill and I heard a lot of holiday makers commenting how good the course was. Well done - k Heather Summers - check the numbers running

    An interesting Parkrun from a timekeeper's point of view!! Really hope that Keith doesn't spend all day doing results, it was a tricky day!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Thought there seemed a 'few' more, but surprised it was that many. Well done to all the volunteers, and Keith for processing the results #imaybesometime ๐Ÿ˜‚ Looking forward to the first runner's time, to see if he's beaten his course record.

    Wow really 700!!! No wonder the poor barcode scanners were a little stressed!! Bet their fingers were sore by the end. Thanks to everyone for a great run xx
