Penrose parkrun #240 19/10/19

My stint as Event Director at Penrose parkrun has come to an end after 240 parkruns!  Many thanks to all who have supported me during that time - all the volunteers and runners and of course Graham!


It was Alan Jones' 230th parkrun - nearly 250!


We had visitors from as far afield as Camborne (with a few others from Somerset and Exmouth!


Don't forget to wear your Halloween fancy dress costumes next week.


I'm sure we'll all meet again the near future.....!
