Bressay parkrun continues to attract people from far and wide, and this week was no exception with visitors from as far away as Australia! In total, 74 people ran, jogged and walked the course for parkrun #68 and racked up an impressive 19 personal bests!

We were thrilled to welcome 33 first timers with visitors from all over the UK including (but not limited to!) Devon, Hampshire and Norfolk. Among our visitors today was a gentleman completing his 100th different parkrun and a lady completing the Bressay course to get a B for her A-Z of parkruns. Our own Frank Miller also had a brilliant week, setting a new personal best time of 20:27 and with it achieving a national level age grade score of 80.52%. Well done to you all!

We're aware that a rogue token initially affected the results but hopefully we've corrected any errors now and thanks for bearing with us on this. Let us know if you think your time might still not be right by emailing bressay@parkrun.com
