It was a warm, sunny morning and we had 194 finishers who ran, jogged and walked at Canons Park parkrun. 33 people attended Canons park for the first time, of whom 18 were trying out parkrun for the first time.   We hope you enjoyed the run and look forward to seeing you again.

Our first male finisher was Gatis Kandis, who finished in 19 minutes and 21 seconds. The first female finisher was Jess Cunnifee, who finished in a great time of 23:36 with an Age Grading of 62.99%. The highest Age Grade at this event was 75.66% achieved by Nathan Powell; what a brilliant result.
