After a slightly damp start it turned out to be perfect parkrun weather this morning. We had 231 runners with a handful of first timers and visitors from Leeds, Sheffield & Barnstaple amongst others, with the furthest travelled coming from Ireland.
There were a couple of milestone runs today with Richard Scoppie & Suzanne Williams both completing their 50th parkruns, well done to both of you.
Numpty of the day has to go to Diane Warren, our regular Run Director who turned up to volunteer today without even being on the roster. She was a welcome addition though and we then sent her straight off to Plymouth wishing her all good luck for the Half Marathon tomorrow.
All that remains is to say well done to Chloe who almost correctly guessed the number of finishers today and a bit thank you to all today's volunteers who were Diane P, Diane W, Jo, Craig, Oliver, Chloe, Rik, Amelia, James, Jane, Max, Stacey, Marie, MIck, Katie & Jess.
See you all again soon. All today's stats are below.
