Harrogate parkrun #396

What a difference a week makes 150% increase in runners from event 395. Seems that you lot definitely prefer the dry. The wet and wild weather decided to take a break and it was warm and dry all the way.

 It was a trio of Tom's out the front, yep positions 1, 2 and 3 were taken by a Tom.
