Melksham parkrun #96

Hope everyone enjoyed the chilly parkrun last Saturday morning. I was delighted to see that 142 runners/walkers/joggers getting out of bed on a Saturday morning and doing 5k to start their weekend off!

When I cycled down to parkrun I could feel the cold breeze flowing past my face. When I got to the parkrun, there was a lot of waterlogged ground, due to the enormous amount of rain recently. The course conditions were very muddy; especially down Murray walk, the marshals there were so nice and directed us parkrunners successful past the slippery bits!
