parkrun #118 Burns Celebration

This week 94 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 14 were first timers and 15 recorded new Personal Bests.

This week we had a Burns theme going on and if I was very creative I could write a poem for this run report, the problem being I can't, instead a quote from Rabbie Burns on how welcoming the Highlands are...

When death's dark stream I ferry o'er,
A time that surely shall come;
In Heaven itself, I'll ask no more,
Than just a Highland welcome.

First place went to Eoin Coull in 17.47, second Stewart Ferns in 19.23, and third was Andy Young in 20.10.
