Event #256

I'd like to start this week by saying a big thank you to all the fab volunteers and core team members who stepped in last week to organise parkrun in our absence.
We had an amazing time in Rome and if you find yourself in the eternal city anytime soon you should give the lovely folk at Roma Pineto parkrun a visit e

Was it me or was it freezing cold this week? I thought we were supposed to be having a warm April?  : )

We welcomed a field of 181 participants this week, including 22 first timers including visitors from Brighton, Lincoln, Lancaster, Doncaster, Scunthorpe and Chester and 12 people taking part in their first parkrun ever.
