Black Park parkrun Event no. 328 – 26th September 2015

Lovely morning for a little 5K run in the park - a little damp underfoot in places but great temperature resulting in 58 PB's.

HUGE Congratulations go out to Barbara Allan who celebrated her 250 Black Park parkrun - Barbara has run an amazing 385 parkruns in total!  Also Congratulations to Carol Coombs who celebrated her 200th parkrun (198 of which have been at Black Park) and to Harbhajan Dhillon who celebrated his 100 parkrun (47 of which have been at Black Park).

Next Saturday see the pacers out on the course (first Saturday of each month) - time to aim for that next PB!
