So It's Goodnight From Me And Goodnight From Him
First and foremost may I please draw your attention to the update that our great Wimbledon Common parkrun event director Peter Collins has provided in the previous post. His information is accurate and up to date and the sentiment that he expresses is very much in keeping with the spirit of our running community.
So, let's take a moment to step away from the "C" word and enjoy some of the superb photos captured by Clive Scammell of the parkrun cool kids doing what they love...
