That's event nbr 169 done and dusted. An adjustment to the standard route was introduced today. As you could see major work has started at the playpark and we are very grateful that Stormont Estate gave us option to us the path at the back. How did you like new route around playpark? Thank you to marshals who did great job and no one got lost!
