We do seem to be incredibly fortunate with lovely sunny Saturday mornings here at Colchester Castle Park. It was brightened up even more with Linda Duncan and her '100' ballons to celebrate her 100th parkrun. Allen Ball was also celebrating his 150th parkrun. Well done to both.
This week we had 393 runners with 31 first timers and 64 recorded new Personal Bests.
