Was it going to be hit or miss ? That's what we were wondering when setting up on the Stray for Harrgate parkrun 398.
Yep it was pretty gloomy when Sir Keith did his measuring lap. Luckily we've got the parkrun weather fairy on speed dial and we had a word. So it was blue sky's all the way.
As ever we couldn't make the magic happen without our volunteers so a huge round of virtual applause for RD Louisa and her awesome team of volunteers.
Top work too by all 360 fantastic runners and walkers who all remembered that it's a run not a race and kept a smile on their face.
A special shout out too this lot from the area's premier running club It was fabulous to see a big contingent of Team Striders making the most of Conyngham Hall being cancelled by running over from Knaresborough and then back again, awesome.
That's it for now, just a few reminders.
Post run refreshments - Join us at Caffe Marconi (2 Princes Square) each week after parkrun to catch up, process the results, have a coffee and a good old chat.
