On arrival the cheers from the volunteers were, "hooray no rain" and they were repaid for their efforts with 203 participants heading out on the course.
We were delighted, with today being a celebration of International Women's Day, to welcome around 15 young ladies from ladies college along with a few teachers who are all planning to join us at parkrun every week through March, it was lovely to see you all.
We also welcomed some first timers including at least one lady from Jersey, who thought our course was much tougher than theirs and I have to agree it is but we love it! First finishers were Steve Manklow and Lottie Smith, well done to you both.
Finally well done to all our participants and another big thank you to all our volunteers, see you all next week.
