Mild late-winter weather greeted the 108 people who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 13 were first timers and 18 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 11 different clubs took part. The event was made possible by 17 volunteers.
John was congratulated on achieving his 100 parkrun milestone. He commented that even after about 40 years of running how much he enjoys Lakeview parkrun.
Terry brought his family along to celebrate his 70th birthday and his 99th parkrun.
Part of the charm of parkrun is the encouragement runners give each other. You can see how much Peter is enjoying Elke encouraging him to a PB.
We know that many Lakeviewers really enjoy the photographs of their run. For a change we have a photograph of the photographer, great job Anthony.
