Cold but Sunny

Upton Court parkrun
Event number 318
2nd February 2019

A huge thank you to Matt Smith for preparing the course so our park run could go ahead! This involved clearing the paths on Friday and being up early on Saturday to put down more salt.

Also thank you to the volunteers for braving the cold - I know very tough for the timers.

This week 195 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 55 were first timers and 10 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 35 different clubs took part.

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Upton Court parkrun Results Page.

It was great to have more runners than usual for a winters day, this was due to most of the local park runs being cancelled. So we had quite a few parkrun tourists, including Nick Wealleans who came all the way down form Leeds on the train! We also had some people brand new to parkrun, we hope to see you again.

Well done to Bryony for reaching the 350 mark!
