Where in the World.... from Maidstone to Maitland, Australia
Stuart and Joanne Robinson wore their Maidstone Apricot T-shirts with pride in Maitland, Australia on 23rd December (you can just see a Santa hat and reindeer ears in the background!), its hard to imagine running in the hot sun in December!!
Where do you take your parkrun t-shirt or do you do some parkrun tourism and run at another parkrun? Send us your photos so we can feature you in the run report!
