Saturday morning was a damp one but that did not deter over 400 parkrunners who donned their waterproofs and came down to the Knavesmire.
Graham Todd celebrated his 200th parkrun and Emma Cowling her 100th. Congratulations to you both.
Saturday also saw parkrun regular John Turnbull's blindfold challenge. It was a fantastic turnout so thank you to everyone who took part.

As I mentioned in the run briefing, next week's parkrun will take place towards the back of the Bustardthorpe Allotments although the start and finish will be close to the corner of the home straight.
This is the link to the original Facebook post by Rob Ward but more information will be provided during the week.
We will require a few more marshals for this week so please get in touch if you would like to help.
