Following blustery conditions on 10 August and Friday's rain, Saturday was better weather for the 318 people who ran, jogged and walked the course at beautiful Panshanger Park.
First man home celebrating his parkrun 50th anniversary was Ben Curtis in 18.25 and first female was Amy Smith in 24.13. Second and third for the men were Russell Casey (18.35) and Dan Mikulskis (18.42). Second and third for the ladies were Louise Thompson (24.27) and Bethany Botheras (24.29). Well done to everyone.
