Lots to mention from today's run. We had an amazing participant on a crutch with a pram in tow, someone who had double heart surgery in November, another who had recently had a pacemaker fitted, and someone who had just flown in from Pakistan the night before! Amazing efforts from you all!
Congratulations go to Dean Walker on his 50th parkrun. And it was great to see our regular tail runner John back too.
