What a glorious Easter Saturday at Penrose parkrun today. The course was stunning as the carpet of bluebells have blossomed and the sun was shining through the trees which obviously boosted parkrunners as the first 5 across the line recorded personal bests with many more PB's to follow during the rest of the morning.
We had a whole host of local runners plus visitors from far and wide; across the border (Tavy and Ivybridge I believe), Kent, Leeds, Cheshire, Newcastle and Peterborough to name a few. There were bunny ears a plenty and thanks to our parkrun volunteers we were lucky to have had a visit from the Easter Bunny with some sweet treats after.
Our regular 'guess the total of parkrunners' comp was won by today's co-RD Jess...who was one out with a guess of 356. Well done Jess on a great job as run director AND winning this too! Good work bunny!
Heres your stats, cheers and gone
Janna and Jess
