Event #69 – The one with the motorbikes and parade…

Today we welcomed 19 smiling participants to a chilly parkrun. The Forest Recreation ground was buzzing with activity as it hosted the Motorbike Easter Egg Run, and was the starting point for the colourful parade in celebration of Sikh Vaisakhi Festival.

Thank you to lovely Natalie for a wonderful warm up where she told us all about her recent trip to London to see some dinosaurs!!

Due to the large amount of other park users, our course was moved from the walkways to the field. This didn't deter all the smiling faces, and even saw us have a head to head sprint finish!!
