A grey, overcast day marked Benny's debut as Run Director. 20210821_105010

Conditions were ideal for parkrunning - not too hot, and the going underfoot dry, but without the bone hard surface we can sometimes get towards the end of the summer. The event seemed to pass very smoothly and the results came out promptly - so it's a big well done to Benny!
