16th October 2021
This week 332 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 32 were first timers and 56 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 38 different clubs took part.
Funny this week I saw on social media that "you can't get a PB at Maidstone parkrun" well 56 of you disagree!!!
