Harrogate Parkrun #393 run report

A marvellous morning on the Stray this week with running galore... The annual Pretty Muddy / Race for Life events were on and together we ensured that everyone could run together safely... It's what it's always about for us.

Thrilled to be back on the bench Run Directing this week after spending a few weeks supporting our nearest neighbours, Conyngham Hall parkrun. Great the see the course almost fence free and hopefully it'll not be long before the grass is back to normal.

Some awesome milestones achieved this week... Huge congratulations to Paula Prentis who joined the 250 Club, Rob Earl who joined the 100 Club and to Alan Brown and Joanne Sharratt who joined the 50 Club. Super duper!
