Run Report for Event #350

This week 721 people took part in Chelmsford Central Parkrun in perfect conditions with 28 first time park runners. This was a week of very arbitrary 'zero' milestones; our 350th event, our park runners clocking up 167,000 park runs having run a total of 835,000 kilometres.

The good weather certainly helped with those personal bests with 92 runners recording a new pb, 93 if we include Mark Newton's buggy pushing pb in 16.49.

The sun brought the dogs out in force and without it being too hot they certainly seem to enjoy it.
