Event number 59 on the 9th of February, 2019

Today was a lovely mild but windy day and there were 127 participants!

Such a welcoming course with lots of things to see – I spotted golfers, cows, sheep, Canadian geese and other birds battling against the wind!

In the amazing number of participants, we welcomed 28 new runners (including two of our friends from Cannon Hill).

Included in that were some tourists from Cannon Hill (us!), Basingstoke parkrun, Worcester, Arrow Valley and more!

Also today must have been a good day for PB's as we had 23.J
