It was a fairly still morning as 60 parkrun participants set off, of whom 23 were first timers, 14 recorded new Personal Best and in addition we had 10 folk who have not registered as yet. Representatives of 11 different clubs took part. Well done to the 3 parkrunarabs who completed their Scottish Regionnaire Status this morning also we welcomed quite a few children and 4 dogs. Mary Senior from Garcube Harriers was running her 50th different parkrun although has run a total of 167 parkruns so far.
