“It’s upwards flat at Bramley”

The second Bramley parkrun saw slightly less damp conditions, and our volunteers raring and ready to go again.   We warmly welcomed 122 runners to us for the first time.  Our Event Director Graham took to the running field to prove it’s not an uphill…it’s a going upwards flat! We also had parkrun tourist from as far away as Sheffield.

After a fervent set of announcements from our first time Run Director Andrew Groves (no nerves, his hands were steady as a rock)  a strong field of 169 people set out on our up’n’down course to much rapturous cheering.
