Event #222, 24th August 2019

An alternative course for us this morning and the overwhelming feedback was that this worked well for participants, so we’ll continue to use this until the bridge is repaired. Please note that no dogs or buggies will be able to participate during the time the alternative course is in operation.

Well done to everyone who took part this morning and congratulations to the following milestones:

50th parkrun - Alan Banks and Emily Thorburn

150th parkrun (and 100th at Portobello) - Fi Mackenzie

200th parkrun - Eleanor Singer
