Another beautiful Winters morning for parkrun at Studley Park. 74 runners and walkers enjoyed a 5km warmup to their weekends.
Our volunteers were awesome this week, we even had fun again. Special thanks for Chris, Oriana and Logan for stepping up to fill the vacant tailrunner position. And to quote Andrea Scott "Photography was on point" this week, nice work Adam. Might have had a few pointers from Nada
