With the weather just holding out for us, 268 hardy souls ran, jogged and walked this very Beautiful course. Following Alex's friendly and informative briefing we headed into the top woods for a hectic but well ran start, one runner who took a tumble was instantly helped by his fellow park runners and was on his way again with no issues. Good teamwork all. The route then opens out after heading down the slope and seeing runners off in the distance of beautiful scenery was an absolute pleasure. Then came the fun technical part through the other wooded section, which was enjoyed despite the looming knowledge that the “slope” was not too far away. With the slope just about defeated, I must say runners were greeted by the most enthusiastic and friendly funnel team I have come across. Congratulations to them, especially the young man handed tokens out. This enthusiasm continued right until the very end, so thank-you to them.

On a personal note may I just say, everyone I spoke to today, runners and volunteers were incredibly friendly, I have terrible social anxiety and you all showed today how great parkrun is for bringing people together and promoting good mental and physical health.
