Aberystwyth parkrun Event number 407

2nd October 2021

It was a damp day and forecast to be damper, but 101 people still ran, jogged and walked Aberystwyth parkrun this morning. 19 of these were first timers and 18 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 16 different clubs took part.

We welcomed several new and returning students this week, including one who chose to spend their first Parkrun in a new town volunteering. Well done Ben!
