September 21st brought us a very pleasant Indian summers day which encouraged 378 parkrunners to take on the 5K course around Fairlands Valley park.
This week 378 people ran and walked the course, of whom 41 were first timers and 59 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 27 different clubs took part.
