This week we have not one, but two run reports from our roving reporters, Lauren Hevey and David Callaghan - thanks both!
1. Lauren's Lookout
Today was a very sunny day and it was very nice to see so many participants – 830!
We have so many participants because we are the nicest parkrun in Birmingham and we have a spacious route to let buggies and dogs run!

2. David's Description
A beautiful, sunny south Birmingham morning was greeted by 830 runner, joggers and walkers for the 385th parkrun at Cannon Hill. Certainly the biggest turn out of the year I've seen and perhaps a sign that spring has finally arrived (although as I write this it's cold and raining again)!
Great to see another 64 first timers -they keep coming - and congratulations to the 87 parkrunners who recorded personal bests.
First female finisher was Alison Price in a new PB and first male finisher was Omer Ahmed, also a PB. Well done both!
