Penrose parkrun #215 – 27th April 2019

After a cold hailstorm before the start today it turned out ok in the end with a lot of first timers and a smattering of tourists making up the numbers.  We had visitors from Crawley, Manchester, Sheffield, Lancashire, Berkshire & the defunct Little Stoke amongst others.

Craig was shadowing me today before his first attempt at Run Director next week, please be kind to him and follow all the parkrun rules to the letter.  Please don't go through the finish funnel more than once and Under 11s, please stay with your adult runner.  As long as he doesn't pick up any of my bad habits he'll be fine, I'm sure Yvonne will see to that!!!

Here are the stats.  I'll see you again in a couple of weeks.
