Event 34 – 11th January 2020 – Rain, rain, gone away?!

The rain held off today for the 64 runners and walkers that came to complete event 34, at Bethlem Royal Hospital. An amazing 23 of these were first timers to this event, and two people started their parkrun journey. A very warm welcome to you all, and well done for completing your first event here today.

6 people recorded new Personal Bests, in tough conditions. Representatives of 16 different clubs took part.

We were really pleased to welcome a group of junior doctors from the hospital today. A special well done to Dr. Will Marsh, who was first over the line today in a time of 20:07. Female course record holder Ellie Osmond was first female today, her fifth first position in her fifth outing here, in a time of 21:10.

A massive thank you to the amazing volunteer team as always:
