Bressay parkrun #71 saw the return of sunshine and plenty of running visitors in the isles for the Simmer Dim half marathon. With the fine conditions, 76 people walked, ran or jogged the course and an impressive 28 were first timers to Bressay! Representatives of 16 different running clubs took part - our highest yet and clear evidence of the reach of the Shetland running scene.

Visitors this week came from all over the UK including Preston, Barton upon Humber, Aberdeen, Inverness, Penarth and Sheffield. A parkrun tourist, Scott Sumner, set the pace with an excellent time of 18:54 and there were 7 new personal bests recorded. Bressay stalwart, Derek Ross, also put in a sterling effort to achieve his 50th parkrun. Well done Derek!
