Autumn seems to be still hiding round the corner as 267 runners enjoyed balmy conditions in Delamere Forest this morning.
We were all keeping our eyes out for a springer spaniel who went missing in the forest last night. Don't think he was spotted this time but hopefully he'll turn up soon.
Double celebration for Chester Tri's Charlie Weaver this weekend as he joins the 100 Club today then celebrates his 17th birthday tomorrow.
Also congratulations to Ellie Keenan, our latest member of the 50 Club.
No shirt this time but much kudos to Anthony Dunn, completing his 200th parkrun.
And the tourists just keep on coming!
This time we welcomed runners from Chester, Congleton, Cuerden Valley, Enniskillen, South Manchester, Warrington, Widnes and Worsley Woods.
Also, tourist of the week must be Stephen Crockett: Not only doing his 82nd parkrun and Delamere debut today, but also his 66th different venue!
Huge thanks to our volunteers again. Please contact us via the website or Facebook if you fancy giving it a go.
Thanks to everyone who turned up, and see you all next week!!
