Easter Saturday saw Lakeview invaded by Wooters who boosted our numbers to one-hundred and sixty runners.
The Lakeview Milestones keep coming, this week saw Kaitlyn and Glenn reach their 50 runs. Thanks Simon for the celebratory cake.
Contact with the ground is optional as Roger again uses his levitation techniques in an attempt to gain any advantage.
Cory was first female over the line and also first outright.
Wide paths and considerate runners as well as the stunning scenery make Lakeview a popular parkrun for prams. Just don't mention the hills.
Our junior runners know how much fun volunteering can be, they even get to watch the wildlife.
We are very grateful to the volunteers who made this event happen:
Julie BURNS, Steve GETLEY, Lee GRANT, Jessica HEMPSALL, Emily HEMPSALL, Paul HEMPSALL, Suzanne HEMPSALL, Karen MCGREGOR, Peter SCOTCHMER, Steve WATT, Scott WHEELER, Ian WILLIAMS
