Cleland parkrun Event number 8, 9th September 2017

This week 44 people ran, jogged and walked the course in ideal running weather - blue skies and cool, of whom 20 were first timers and 12 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 5 different clubs took part.

It was great to see a large number of regulars - and a great turn out of juniors - 10 of 44 participants, so almost a quarter of the field!! Well done to all of you having a crack at the course, and thanks to parents for bring them along, too!

The event was made possible by 6 volunteers:

Anthony INGRAM • Jon LANG • James CHALMERS • Jayde MARGETTS • Christine MILLER • Vivienne LEWIS
