Roundhay parkrun #429 – 13th July

This morning at Roundhay parkrun we had 378 people take part and either walk, jog or run the course. There were 63 first timers which included tourists from Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong!

Our first finisher today was Benjamin Douglas in a time of 16:08. This is the third fastest time at Roundhay! The course record of 15:34 was set in November 2011. Well done Benjamin!

I was tail walking today and had chance to chat to a lot of people on the way round and say hi to lots of people going past. This was the view from the back just after the start.

Completing the course today were the fantastic Mini Mermaids and Yound Tritons. Well done to you all and to the fantastic volunteers who support them. You all did amazing!
