I don't think there's a thread - though there is a rather wonderful photo of Fetch in the gallery. Is anyone else taking part in this Saturday's events? Resolution Runners are doing a red, white and blue run and I imagine lots of parkruns will take part. I know it's easy to scoff at these things but I do think it's a great idea. I particularly like that ITV are switching off with a 'We've gone running, why not join us' message.

All parkruns in Scotland are taking part by default! (Because parkruns in Scotland starts at 9.30, not 9am). Is it supposed to be fancy dress, or what? :-) G

I don't think you have to do fancy dress - we always run on Saturdays so thought the colour scheme would add to the occasion!

My local parkrun (Dulwich) is taking part and coincidentally I'm doing my 100th parkrun at the same time :-)

Apparently volunteers at my local run may get "I Am Team GB" shirts and may additionally be required to hang out bunting.

Disappointingly little else happening in this area. Launch of a junior bike club at a nearby facility and I could get a free swim if I go to Glasgow. No chance to, say, try handball or even throw a javelin.

I have to say my red is a little on the pink side of red, couldn't find any actual red!

Am I the only person in the country who had heard absolutely nothing at all about this until our parkrun ED got sent a small box of branded tat last week?

I believe we're expected to hang some bunting, blow up balloons and hand out stickers. There's only a couple of crap T-shirts in the box. I've no idea what else, if anything, we're doing that will be out of the ordinary - we did our Olympic themed event to coincide with the opening ceremony.
