The one with an absent RD due to calling out ‘a very nice man’ but another very nice man stepped in, Runpals and the female course record was nearly beaten!
Just wanted to say thank you team for organising another fab parkrun. A big thanks goes out to Monty who stepped in for me as RD with Richard, and VC Paula. I’ll be brief but on route to parkrun my car just cut out on me, luckily not too far from home – thought might be a flat battery – had to call The AA who arrived just over the hour – fuse had blown causing it to cut out - Car got started but going to get it looked at- anyway back to parkrun....;)
The event was made possible by our fabulous volunteers :) well done 34 of you x
