Event #60 01/01/19 – New Years Day

 

Happy New Year!

 

Well hello there! Your run report is guest written today by me, Rory. It's my first one so please go easy on me!


Today is that exciting day every parkrun junkie idolizes - the only day you can do the double! It was clear from the crowds that many were eager to partake. We smashed our attendance record ↓

There were 533 athletes taking part today: some of them first timers, eager to start their resolutions early; some rocking up half asleep ready to run off hangovers. Amongst them were tourists, milestones and special guests:
