Event 30 – 21st December 2019 – Remake of Das Boot


Well the weather hadn't been great all week. Less hardy parkruns (ie Bromley ;) ) had cancelled. As the volunteers set up the event, the rain was torrential, filling up our wellies. And by start time, the course surface comprised a 6" water topping overlaying a foot of mud. But the rain let up and a rainbow appeared, and there were plenty of smiley faces at our festive fancy dress event.

A happy elf!

It's not a race, but there was an exciting non-race for 1st finisher, with Bromley Vets star Tim SOWTER just holding off visitor Christopher TSANTOULAS to record his 1st no. 1 spot in his 113th parkrun.

It was a particularly notable day for Christopher, and Sheila SILVEIRA who completed their LonDone, and celebrated with us in the Community Centre by sharing some delicious chocolate cake.
