A huge thank you to two tourists who provided their experience of Perry Hall parkrun.
By Victoria McCrea
Storm Callum didn't stop 120 of us battling through to finish parkrun today - well done everyone.
It was my first time at Perry Hall and I'd like to say thank you to the volunteers and to everyone for making me feel so welcome. I always enjoy out and back laps as it's great to see everyone going round the course. The biggest dilemma today though was whether to jump over,go round or go through the puddles - which one did you do? To me Perry Hall is one of those parks I'd never have known unless it was for parkrun so I look forward to coming back soon and hopefully when the weather is warmer.
