Happy New Year

Event #300 1st January 2020

So it happened again! We ran out of Tokens as 558 people came to Peckham rye parkrun which gave us a new attendance record! 178 were first timers and 55 recorded new Personal Bests. However this year we where much better prepared. A much longer finish funnel made up of garden chairs and pretty much anything else we could get our hands on worked a treat
