Event number 280
28th September 2019


There were periods of very heavy showers this morning leaving some gigantic puddles for the runners to run (or swim through). Despite the rain we still managed to get 173 people stroll into the park this morning to run, jog and walk the course. We welcomed 19 first timers to parkrun and 5 visitors from other parkruns (Birkenhead, Croydon, Hull, Stanford and Winchester. 18 runners recorded new Personal Bests and representatives of 18 different clubs took part.
