First parkrun of 2015!

Aveley parkrun

Event number 76

3rd January 2015

January is historically a hot month and it usually means hot Saturday mornings. The weather was absolutely spot on for us this week with cooler temperatures and a slight breeze made our run very enjoyable!

We had lots of new people who joined us for the first time so it was great to see some new faces. We hope to see you again!
