460 runners experienced the new and improved finish line today. The nature of the bushes was good and the simple walk back to the cars did not affect finishing runners which was even better.

Parkrun has the idea of getting a defibrillator… just in case! It does occasionally happen and parkrun would like to be prepared for it. They cost around £500, therefore if everyone who regularly runs donated around £1 then it’d be sorted.
If you are interested in donating, ask the parkrun director.

- Jonathon Wiles, Tom Adams and Meyrick Field with their 50ths
