The cooler weather is here, and it suited the more than 70 people who set PBs this morning. We also had Sheldon Swann's 100th run. Congratulations Sheldon!
Well done to our first finishers Elliot Carr and Solly Litchfield and a big thank you to all of the volunteers, without whom there would be no parkrun.
