Event 404 – 30th March 2019

British Summer Time officially began overnight on Saturday,  but always ahead of the curve, parkrun summer time seemed to kick off at 9am(ish)!  The weather was absolutely glorious and the park was at its finest.  The grass was freshly cut, the birds were singing, the ducks were quacking, the bees were buzzing and the dogs were definitely barking!  (Serious bit - to ensure everyone can hear the pre-run brief please do move away from the crowd during the brief if your four legged companion is feeling a bit chatty!)
