Still Muddy


A glimpse of sunshine as Andy gives his run brief.

Welcome to the 157 new visitors to Bushy Park.

94 Bushy PBs this week - many congratulations to you all. Worthy of a mention is PB regular David Gannon; 369 parkruns and still improving his PB. Jealous!

3 of this week's Bushy regulars have run over 1,500 times between them, and each achieved impressive age grades of over 80%. Congratulations to Ruth HUTTON  (87.15%), Polly ADAMS  (82.14%) and Jeremy PALMER (80.59%).



5 runners reached the 250 milestone. Many congratulations to Mark COOP, Graham LAND, Kishore DESAI, Shaun FRY and Lorraine DILLAMORE. Graham and Shaun were running Bushy for the first time - come back soon!.

Lorraine Dillamore, a Bushy parkrun regular, celebrated her 250th run in style wearing a very fetching coloured tutu. The supporting cast dressed to match and certainly brightened up the proceedings. Very well done Lorraine.
