Even in the pouring rain this week 236 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 18 were first timers and 25 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 17 different clubs took part, to celebrate parkrun's first ever leap year event!

A huge thank you to our fabulous volunteers who braved the conditions including Jayne who steeped in last minute, thank you!

Two of our regular volunteers celebrated milestones this week, well done Andrew on achieving his 25th stint as a volunteer and 'duck marshal' John on achieving his 100! thank you both for your commitment.
