Durham parkrun #397

Well done to everyone who ran today and sacrificed watching the Rugby World Cup (some of you lucky runners may have managed to do both!) There was a better turnout of runners than I had expected. Thankfully yesterday’s rain had stopped and it was nice weather- dry and mild. However, it was very muddy and wet underfoot. I nearly slipped over a couple of times!

Like always, the atmosphere was friendly and cheerful. I joined the Durham Parkrun community in October 2018 when I started university. It is one of my favourite Parkrun courses- its nice, flat and scenic (particularly by the river) but the dreaded grass…

See you runners next week!
