Another busy Saturday for Graves this week with another top turnout of 327 people raring to run, jog, walk their way around Graves park. It was a mild morning but with the traditional Graves micro-climate of being 5 degrees colder than anywhere else…!

There were 38 first timers this week, 10 of these were doing their first ever parkrun. Well done to you all.

Stephen was RD for his second time this week and had organised for the Sheffield Goodgymers to hold a pacing event. There were pacers from 24 minutes to 40 minutes and also included some run / walk pacers. There was some really positive feedback from this event, plenty of people enjoying the inclusivity and a few PBs as a result. There have been requests for repeat events so watch this space!
