Leamington parkrun Event number 438 24th August 2019

I am doing the race report for Event #438. I normally go to Coventry Parkrun however due to an event taking place at the memorial park it was cancelled. I am part of Kenilworth runners so it was good to see a couple of people running and also volunteering.

A special shout out go to the following people who celebrated milestones:

Adam Notley, Aunty Verity, Peter Crowley and Sean Mitchell celebrate their 100th!

I thoroughly enjoyed my first parkrun at Leamington yesterday and it was a very warm one.

Beautiful morning for it as the sun was shining. Considering it was my first time I ran it well in a great time of 25.07 despite the hill which I quite enjoyed.





Graham Patton celebrated his (78th) birthday during the parkrun yesterday.
