The weather conditions this morning were near perfect spring weather for running, if you ran with us you were one of 323 people who took to the paths of the Countess of Chester Country Park for the 191st edition of Chester parkrun.
We had 65 first timers take on the 2 laps of our course this week, 23 of those were first timers doing their first ever parkrun, while 42 were visiting Chester for the first time, having run at parkruns elsewhere previously. I know we say this most weeks, but we love welcoming first timers, there is always a welcome smile and lots of encouragement for first timers also those returning to parkrun after a break and regulars alike. We hope to see you all back with us again soon.
Congratulations to all our milestone runners this week
