Fulham Palace parkrun
Event number 22
15th March 2014
Another week, another parkrun in Bishop's park - and once again we were delighted to see so many of you out to run with us! I also can't get over how wonderful the weather was AGAIN - the only downside of which was that when we went for coffee it was really quiet this week, presumably as you were all out enjoying the sunshine after a good run to start the weekend!
In other news, our monthly prize of a pair of trainers from Sweatshop for February was awarded to Ruby Lord who wasn't with us this weekend when it was announced. Congratulations Ruby to from all of the volunteers!
We've also had a string of tshirts for 10 runs dispatched so keep an ear out at the briefing if you're expecting one of those!
