This week 299 people ran, jogged and walked the winter course at Reigate Priory. 54 were first timers and 15 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 22 different clubs took part including 27 of our friends from Horley Harriers.
As is traditional at this time of year we were joined by a large number of first timers for our first Saturday parkrun of 2018. Each year we welcome a whole bunch of new park runners in January only to see a large number of these disappear in February. Please do stick with it and try to join us through out the year. Remember a parkrun is not just for January!
We also welcomed back the popular Winter Course which we use when the usual route is deemed a bit too muddy for safe use. I for one, really enjoyed the new layout ( it has changed slightly from last time) it was great to experience different areas of the priory and of course the lovely downhill section.
We were joined by tourists from Brighton, Banstead and Bracknell, all the Bs! It is always a pleasure to see visitors from our fellow venues and we hope to see you again in the near future.
Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Reigate Priory parkrun Results Page.
