The ground was nice and dry. Perfect for PB's! A staggering 52 people ran a PB! There were also 17 First timers, 7 of them were new to parkrun hope you enjoyed it and will carry on.

3 people ran their 200th parkrun - an unofficial milestone, but impressive nevertheless! Well done to Dylan Wymer, Simon Bold and Barry Fisher.

Well done to all 31 volunteers. Today saw Conor O'Shea wearing the Run Director vest for the first time, and it was good to see him directing the start line signs and tape with so much dexterity!
