The ever-so-slightly underwhelming weather conditions certainly didn't dampen the spirits, as there were plenty of smiling faces amongst the 154 runners, joggers, and walkers who joined us for our regular Saturday morning get-together in beautiful Canons Park.
It was lovely to welcome 28 people to our parkrun for their first visit, 13 of whom were particpating in parkrun for the very first time - welcome to the parkrun family!
And congratulations to the 23 people who recorded personal best times for the Canons Park course; some of you clearly love running in the rain!!
Thank you so much for the wonderful group of volunteers who made parkrun possible!!
