A beautiful autumnal morning in the forest with the trees changing colour was captured by Chris and Eileen Griffiths as they were putting the arrows out on the course, well before the 265 parkrunners set off on their 5K constitutional.

Also before setting off we were pleased to welcome another bunch of first-timers and tourists, congratulate those runners doing a milestone run, and give a round of thanks to our amazing volunteers.
This week we had 6 dipping a toe in the mud and doing there first ever parkrun (hope you enjoyed it and hopefully see you back soon!), and another intrepid band of tourists, including visitors from Chester, Congleton, Erddig, Lac de Divonne (Geneva), Pennington Flash, St Helens, Whitley Bay, Widnes, Worsley Woods and York.
Congratulation to Catherine Hill and Midori Greenland who completed their 100th run today.
Also Bob Corinaldi and Rebecca Kenwright, both doing their 50th.
Plus (another?!) special mention to Chris & Eileen Griffiths - doing their 150th parkruns whilst simultaneously collecting up the arrows (just hope the tail walker, Stephen Smout, managed to find his way around the course!)
Finally a formal reminder from the Forestry Commission:
We know you're all eager to get yourselves to parkrun on a Saturday morning, and home again afterwards, but please remember there is a 15mph speed limit on the access road - all the way from the main road to the car parks.
This is both for the safety of other park users and the local residents.
Thanks again to all who turned up, especially the volunteers, and see you all next week!
