Event #158 Run Report

Parkrun Report #158
15 June 2019

The sun peeped ever so slightly through the dark clouds and, coupled with the cool breeze, provided perfect conditions for the 372 people who ran, jogged and walked the 5k course. The field included 52 first timers, representatives of 29 different clubs and an impressive 61 new Personal Bests. Congratulations to the new milestone club members: Jane Waters who completed 50 runs and Joseph Miles (Junior) who completed 10 runs.
