A cheerful crowd of 101 runners gathered this morning. Dry and not too cold, it was an excellent run with the tail walker recording one of the fastest times we have ever had. The volunteers had a change around. John left 'John's corner', for once, to give out finish tokens, leaving David with the awesome responsibility of 'go left', 'don't go left'. He seemed to cope.
Congratulations to Pam Smith from Worcestershire who ran with her family to celebrate her 70th birthday this weekend. Many happy Parkrun returns!
