Joyeux anniversaire Graves parkrun!

This  week’s parkrun was our 7thbirthday at Graves… so to celebrate we did fancy dress, cakes and a pre run briefing in French until our run director ran out of French words and went back to English. This didn’t take that long!!

In addition to costumes and cakes, to really mix things up we also decided this week the 332 of you that turned up to run, jog or walk could do the course backwards. Never ever a dull moment up here at Graves.
