Waiting for Dennis
The threat of storm Dennis didn’t stop 123 people joining us for our 177th parkrun run from the memorial gardens in Ottershaw.
The Mimosa tree was covered in small yellow flowers and was a burst of colour as you entered the car park.
We had 19 first timers join us many who regularly do nearby events that had been cancelled.
Despite the conditions Chris Dyson ran a speedy 18:14 and Alex Slotwinska 22:40 to finish 1st male and female home.
4 other runners achieved pb’s Christina Donova-Rossa, Jonathon Otter, Ed Freeman and William Rutherford
Thanks to all the volunteers who braved the elements to welcome and cheer on the runners.

All the runners and marshals were back in just over an hour in plenty of time before storm Dennis arrived.
Hope to see you next with hopefully better weather.
