This week 135 people ran, jogged and walked the course in bright sunshine and slightly humid conditions. We had 14 first timers and 19 of you recorded new Personal Bests.
Metros Running Club dominated at the front of the field with Nathan POWELL and Sasha BIRKIN taking the 1st men and 1st ladies accolade. The 1st junior was Ellie POWER. Well done to all 3 of you!
The run would not have happened with out the help of our fantastic high-vis hero's. Please consider volunteering if you haven't done it for a while or haven't managed it at all yet. The summer weeks can be difficult with people away so please consider helping. A huge thank you this week to

For the statisticians out there, this week saw our 10,000th Canons Park finisher. That's 10,000 in less that 2 years - a remarkable achievement.The honour of being our 10,000th finisher goes to Richard COWEN who was running his 6th parkrun.
Next week, the kids are taking over and will be running the event. Come along and support what will be a unique experience!
