Event #253

It was such a surprise to see the sun this week that we even questioned ourselves en route if it was indeed Saturday! . Having convinced ourselves that it was indeed parkrunday we headed into the park as usual to set up :)

The nice weather brought a good sized field of 170 participants to the country park. This included 18 first timers to our course including visitors from Bolton, Norwich,Melbourne, Wokingham,Birmingham and York. We hope you enjoyed your visit with us : ).

We welcomed 7 people doing their first ever parkrun, Paul DEARINGIzzy HEXTALLRichard MARSHALLBrook JONESDavid PUMPHREYJessika 'HONAKERNicole RUEHMANN, Hope you enjoyed it and welcome to the family! :D
