This week 168 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 33 were first timers and 7 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 23 different clubs took part. Even though the temperature was quite a few degrees higher than recent days, the wind was brutal, especially out on that dam.
Ian RULE completed his 50th parkrun today (having completed 48 of them at Rutland water), well done Ian! Two of our junior runners, Noah ROCK and Claudia SUTTON completed their 10th parkruns today too – congratulations to both of you!
