What a beautiful, snowy and sunny morning for running in Perth! After the thought yesterday that we may have to cancel due to the weather it was fantastic to see 184 people brave the sub-zero temperatures and enjoy running in the snow! Thank you to our fantastic volunteers for braving the cold too...there were definitely numb fingers for the timekeepers!
Congratulations to our milestone runners this week who were Molly Proctor a junior running her 10th run. Claire Fox visited from Edinburgh and was running her 50th run.
We were also joined by several visitors from other areas of the courntry...at least one commented that they had never run in the snow!
