Saturday dawned dry but the rain soon appeared to dampen the throng of over 230 runners. Amongst the Shepton Mallet regulars were several tourists .The outstanding performance on the day was from Ange Norris with a time of 21.47 a new ladies vw 55 to 59 age group record for a WAVA of 84.24% putting her 3rd on our age grade ladder. We must apologise for a slightly early start and encourage Rich to not buy watches from the pound shop!
Lately we have had to remind a few runners that you must only walk and not run if carrying a child it's one of the few parkrun rules there for your safety.
As we enter the coldest time of year please check here for news and the Facebook page just in case we need to cancel due to icy or snowy conditions. We will try to do this on a Friday night but in some case it may be as late as 7.45 on the day. The Run Director on the day has total control over this and once cancelled it's off. If this happens you can get your running fix at Street on the grass less than 30 minutes away.
Hat of the week??
Song of the week. Like Clockwork by The Boomtown Rats
