What can I say …………………..?
Simply just another fabulous morning in Beveridge Park for Kirkcaldy parkrun.
A great turnout of runners and volunteers alike, pretty decent weather, lots of great running and walking, lots of huge smiles in the park, lots of high fives and simply great fun - what more can you ask for ?
There were 248 people running, jogging or walking with us this morning.
27 of you were at parkrun for the very first time - welcome to all of you
Another 13 of you were visiting Kirkcaldy for the first time, welcome to all of you too.
We hope to see you all again !
There were 35 Personal Bests recorded today, an amazing number, well done to each and every one who achieved this feat.
Congratulations to Bruce Campbell who set a new age category record today (VM 50-54) completing the course in 17:58. Bruce runs at Weymouth normally, hope that helped make the journey worthwhile !
