Well, wasn't it a lovely sunny day for parkrun! Although, a little on the chilly side cheering you all on at the finish. Lovely to see a few new faces and some touristy visitors. We hope you all enjoyed your run and look forward to seeing you again soon.
I'd like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to our volunteers this week, without them there would be no run for you all to enjoy and quite a few of them stepped up at the last minute to fill in the gaps. Thank you to you all!
Keep your eyes pealed on the news pages over the next few weeks as we have some exciting announcements to make for you all!
Hope you've had a good week and happy running!
