The most noticeable thing today was the wedding party. To my shame I didn't get the names of the happy couple, but it was quite a sight to see unicorns being chased through the forest by a tyrannosaurus rex. Congratulations to the happy couple and everyone who ran today.

This week we only had two first time parkrunners, welcome to Francis KILLICK • Jo TAYLOR
