Lastly, well done to the 38 people that got a PB and kudos to the chap wearing the birthday cake hat! It's always fun to see people wearing fancy dress items while doing their parkrun and if you're up for it there's still plenty of time to prepare your outfit for the Halloween fancy dress parkrun coming up at the end of this month.

We hope you all enjoyed today's parkrun and we look forward to welcoming you back again next week. Take care and have a great week people!


Thanks again Lee West for that fantastic run report.

We still need volunteers for the upcoming events so if you can lend a hand please contact the team via email

Don't forget that we are putting on a Halloween event on the 30/10/2021.

See you soon.
