Misty Morning in Black Park

Black Park parkrun Event number 576
9th October 2021

Autumnal mist greeted everyone to the park this week but by 10:00am the sun broke through and the skies cleared.

Several runners were sporting shirts from running a certain marathon either virtually or around the streets of London. Well done everyone who has completed a run event no matter the distance! I hope there were not too many sore legs out there.

1st round the course was an Unknown runner and 2nd was our female course record holder Pippa Woolven
