What does a runner have to eat when they are in last place?
This week we had 339 runners who enjoyed the sunny weather around Willen lake. Many of our local runners travelled around a bit today due to the Decathlon run which was on after our parkrun. For those who voted remain, you guys got a lot of support near the finish from the Decathlon runners which was really great!
Hope anyone who travelled around also enjoyed their run.
