Lydney parkrun
Event number 92

If you haven't already seen them take a look at Skruffie's fantastic photos which show the joy of jumping over a living tree.

Well done to everyone today. This week 90 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 9 were first timers. It was lovely to meet tourists and first timers including those from Cwmbran, St Albans and Kettering.

Well done to those who celebrated PB's this morning - David Atkinson, Graham Worthy, Mark Batten, Danella Wrend, Hamish Hughson, Bridget Davies, Lyndsay Patterson and Joanna Cowell.

Good luck to all parkrunners taking part in Forest of Dean Half marathon or 5k run tomorrow. I will be cheering you all on from Swansea 10k with a few other parkrunners  ;-)
