I am sure we are all very relieved that the hail held off until after the results were processed. While parkrun was happening the sun shone brightly, even if the breeze was chilly. Well done everyone on avoiding the puddle encroaching a little onto the path by the play area.
This week we had several visitors thanks to the visiting day at the university, and also some flood and waterlogging refugees from other parkruns that had to cancel.
Congratulations to Alex on completing his 50th parkrun and thanks for the cakes.
Tomorrow regular park runner Ruth Flatman is hosting the St David’s Day Cake-a-thon at St Paul’s Methodist Centre (corner of Bath St and Queens Rd), 3-5pm. This afternoon tea will celebrate Ruth qualifying to represent Team GB in the World Triathlon Championships in Canada this August. Come and eat cake; small donations towards the cost of the GB trisuit are appreciated.
