Personal best pyrotechnics

Royal Tunbridge Wells
Event no 223

3 November 2018
Run report and photos by Richard Woodfield

A record November attendance of 269 parkrunners completed today's 5k on a dry, bright and cool morning. Interestingly, a number of other local parkruns also had record attendance for this month, including Tonbridge, Bedgebury, East Grinstead and Malling. The event was made possible by 25 volunteers.

The first weekend in November often finds the autumn colours in Dunorlan Park at their finest, and today was no exception...

Preparations for the fireworks display later in the day were well in hand....

Today, due to the firework preparations in progress on the far side of the lake, we ran the original version of the course (ie including Quagmire Corner). Whether due to this - or whether it was down to Run Director, Francis Eames, asking for pyrotechnics from the parkrunners - is unclear, but lots of parkrunners decided to to go all out for a good time. No less than 63 personal bests were achieved.
