Event #266 Keith Ivison parkrun

Shrewsbury parkrun Event number 266 8th June 2019 The weather may have been a little soggy on Saturday but it didn't deter an amazing 521 runners, maybe the lure of cake at the finish helped.  The Shropshire Shufflers were out in force alongside others who wore red, white and blue for our Keith Ivison memorial parkrun, a run to remember Keith and other runners no longer with us.
