Walthamstow run 369 welcomed 141 runners and walkers to the course this morning with a large group of 28 first timers. The first male home was Joshua Rees in 17:37 and the first female home was Anna Roman in 23:06. Well done to both of them. Coincidentally it was also Anna's 100th parkrun today along with Richard Selby, both of whom received a much prized certificate from the Run Director! Congratulations to the 22 runners who recorded personal best times.

Many Walthamstow parkrun runners are volunteers at tomorrow's Vitality Central London Half Marathon and a number of our regular runners are taking part including our Event Director Sharron Rooney, a regular runner John Gamble and today's Run Director Steve Peacock (me! - I must be mad). I'm sure there will be others too. Good luck to everyone running Vitality or any of the other events taking place this week.

We'll be back same time and place next Saturday when Gerry will be your Run Director.

Have a good week everyone.

Thanks to today's 13 volunteers who ensured the run could go ahead.
