Event #124 – Scorchio!

What do we Brits like to talk about more than anything else? The weather of course and the hottest April ever (at least since the dinosaurs became extinct) bought out nearly 260 walkers, joggers and runners!


Well done to Angus Bennison on reaching his 100th run this week!2018-04-21_02-46-46

Angus was also well supported by a number of fellow "Larks" who meet up Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Larkfield Leisure Centre (should you fancy it!)


This week we have lots of photos on Flickr... did you spot yourself? Here's just a small sample..







NEXT WEEK - Walk/Run Pacing Returns!

Tell all your friends! We'll have walk/run pacers available for beginners, returners and everyone in between for the next 10 or so weeks!


Please give a round of applause for your wonderful volunteers! Each week they give up their time so that you get to parkrun... We don't demand it, but we do encourage everyone to consider having a go at volunteering occasionally.  If you can possibly spare some time one week, how about getting in touch via mallinghelpers@parkrun.com?
