Penrose parkrun #210, 23/03/2019

Well, Spring is upon us and today it was just dry enough to get the finish funnel back on to the field! That said, there was still a chill in the air and a few of our intrepid volunteers, me included, were a little on the cold side with all the standing around. We had a couple, Ed and Nell from Rutland, who came down on the sleeper train and emailed with a request for a pickup at Penzance. A big thanks to Sarah (no surname as yet I'm afraid), who waited for the train, which was 20 minutes late, and brought them to our event!

Tl done!his week 232 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 36 were first timers and 38 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 24 different clubs took part.
