Lochiel parkrun – Event number 19 – 9th January 2016

We had our second highest turnout for Lochiel parkrun today, with 160 participants!

Well done to everyone who got out of bed early and came along for their weekly parkrun fix. It was a great morning for increasing the speed with 40 new PBs!

Thank you to our volunteers today, we literally couldn't do it without you.
