Event 12- Here comes the sun!

The ducks were back in the puddle at the start point, ready to greet the 101 participants of Event 12 at Bethlem Royal Hospital parkrun. The rain had cleared to leave lovely sunny, but humid conditions.

We welcomed 38 first timers on Saturday, including our 1st place male Jamie Buckland and 1st place female Georgina Horton! We hope that you all enjoyed your run and come and visit us again soon. 

Despite the humidity, 13 of the returning runners managed a PB. Well done to you all!

Massive congratulations to Simon Narracott who celebrated his 250th run with us today! Thank you for the lovely chocolate cake!
