Despite the slightly damp conditions underfoot, 16 of you got new PBs this week. Congratulations to all of you.

4 runners were recorded as “unknown” in this week’s results. The parkrun rule is: No barcode, no time, no exceptions, so please do remember to register and bring a printed barcode with you. You can print out a sheet of 6 barcodes from your profile page, that’s enough to keep lots of spare ones in handy places. Or you can order (small charge) a variety of plastic barcodes from: https://parkrun-barcode.com/

Please note that barcodes stored on phones aren’t accepted.
