WK #364 (9)

WK #364 (2)

but the cold didn't stop 18 runners take part in their first park run, although the slippy conditions probably went some way to affecting those personal bests with only 26 recording new PBs.

Due to the very wet weather we've been having we have relocated to the viaduct start/ finish for a couple of weeks to allow the normal finish area to recover from the recent wear and tear.
