I had to Google "parkrun" on seeing your comment. Interesting ...

We'll have to wait to see exactly what information they DO publish after today's runs. I'm sure the person in charge of the spreadsheet will be making a statement in due course :lol:

It's only the overall course records that have been removed, that shouldn't affect the spreadsheet. I can still see that Kevin ran Osterley today in a time of 43:30.

As the person in tempory charge of the spreadsheets, my statement is: I'm going to carry on regardless. Lots of the spreadsheet is very un-parkrun-spirited in nature (course wars would be straight in the bin if it were all my decision) but there's no need for us to follow the lead of the parkrun website in this regard. Basically, business as normal unless the data becomes unavailable.

This week 9 of us ran across 7 different courses. There were three new best times for 2024, and Iain joins the 250 club! Congratulations to us all. Link.

OK that's good -my interpretation was that you could only view and access your own stats
