Graves parkrun run report Saturday 2nd March 2019

So, last week at Graves we expected sunshine and we got mist. This week, as specifically requested in last weeks’ run report we may have started off with cloud, but by 9.30 there was definitely sunshine. So the 337 people who ran, jogged and walked the course got to enjoy it. Lucky us.

Each week at Graves we welcome visitors from all over the country, and this week we had a visiting trainee run director from Munich, Nathan Adams, son of our regular park runner and Olympian (1976) Brian Adams.

Cloudy start…..
