We had a fresh, chilly but beautiful morning for today's Camperdown parkrun. The park was looking fantastic in full autumn colours. The course was also in good condition, if a tad 'squelchy' in the usual places. 140 parkrunners took to the course and the volunteers stayed in the sun to keep warm! Our post run hot drinks in the café warmed hands up nicely. Well done to everyone who ran & volunteered today - you were all fantastic! Full details of today's parkrun are below - congrats to Craig Love and Jane Dunlop on their first places today. We're looking forward to next week already...
