Evesham parkrun Event number 83 5th November 2016

A cool dry morning for some great running, with what seamed to be a multi-directional wind. 16 people ran Evesham for the first time, for 6 of those it was their first ever parkrun. It amazes and greatly pleases me the number of PBs each week, this week 14.

You may have noticed that your race times, although not your positions have changed from the initial results. This was due to the absence of a number tag and you Run Director (Robert Hale) making an error in processing, due to the disappointment of not being able to purchase Raphael's large fried breakfast, as they were too engrossed in catering for a party!
