245 runners this week included 12 parkrun newbies. Fantastic! 16 runners made their first visit to Crane parkrun. Welcome to all!
The third run of the year saw 27 chalk up a new PB and 2 reach a significant milestone. A bit of a parkrun tourist, Karen Anders marked her 200th run with her first visit to Crane Park, while Crane regular Stephen Sainsbury completed his 300th run - 247 of Stephen's runs have been at Crane. Congratulations to both!
