Thank you to everyone came this week, to the 79 of you who ran, to the 20 of you who had never been to Lydney parkrun before, to the 12 of you who got yourselves a new PB, and to the 15 of you who volunteered to make Lydney parkrun happen this week.
Whilst our number were down we also sent our celebrations to Forest of Dean parkrun who celebrated their 400th run this week.
Well done to all of you who remembered that the normal car park was closed, and to those that only remembered as they pulled in, you all got here on time!!!
