Summer is just around the corner and it was a beautiful hot and sunny morning that greeted 176 parkrunners on Saturday. The glorious weather showcased our spectacular course and with the sun glinting on the lake and barely a breath of wind, conditions were perfect for some great running! Well done to everyone who started their weekend with parky and as always a massive shout out to our wonderful volunteers.
There are still a few volunteer spots to be filled for next week’s spooky Halloween parkrun so if you are interested head to the website and put your name down.
