Lots going on this week, with some of our runners doing the Perth Tartan Half Marathon and some doing the Tattie Run. These events also attracted a goodly number of visitors to Perth Parkrun. It was also great to welcome a number of first timers.
It was the last RD duty for Katharine Melville, who was a founder member of the team nearly 5 years ago. Katharine has volunteered as Run Director 25 times. She will continue to volunteer and run in her W75 age class.
There was a special clap for Karen Walters who completed her 200th run, after doing the course recce.
Donald Yellowley joined the 100 club and Kevin Lelland achieved his 50 milestone.
