Special thanks to Adam WAKEFIELD who took some fabulous professional photographs for us this week (shared on our Facebook page). Check out @wakeys_media on Instagram for more of Adam's work. I have picked out some of my favourites for this report but it was very difficult just to chose a few!
We welcomed tourists from local parkruns Worcester, Ludlow and Dudley and from further away, Ipswich, Birkenhead and Pontypridd.
Congratulations to our lovely Debbie NEWBOULD on her 50th parkrun (so sorry we didn't get a photo of you Debbie!)
Before I go, can I just remind everyone not to take our finish tokens home! We have lost so many now that the replacements are not scanning properly and we will need to purchase a new set soon, at cost to us. If you see anyone pocketing a token please remind them that it needs to be returned thank you.
See you all next time!
