As you get ready for Easter parkrunday , here are some takeaways from last week for you to get set for tomorrow.
Event #167 was hosted by 15 volunteers for 279 runners. The volunteers arrived on time and we were all set with course prep and training well in time.
We had 60 first time runners at the park , many of them from North Bristol Running Group as part of their Couch-2-5K challenge. Some tourist from as far as Poole joined us as well. Many of them concerned about the future of Little Stoke parkrun.
Edward Stock and Rob Dixon joined the 50 club last week. Congratulation to both of them.
