Beautiful day for Roundshaw Parkrun. The temperature was pretty warm at about 20 degrees.
Rupert commented that it was the clearest view of Canary Wharf that he had ever seen.
Our tourists were all local - Bromley, Riddlesdown and Nonsuch.
Joe Victor (Collingwood) celebrated his 200th parkrun. I think it was a family affair with his son tying with me and wife following.
There were lots of Personal Bests. Impressive running by Richard and Tim Mander, who are quite new to Roundshaw.
Congratulations to a completely new parkrunner. Impressive first run at 32 minutes by Dawn Sim.
Kirsty Cotton got her best age grading yet. Come on Kirsty, so close!
Ed PS There are photos this week - so do have a look at those as well!
