Twas the morning after Halloween but there didn't seem to be a sugar hangover amongst the 56 parkrunners who showed up this morning. We welcomed 2 new parkrunners to the Warwick family and were happy to see some old friends returning to the course. After the heat we have had this week, we were blessed with a cool breeze and even a few drops of rain. Plenty of smiling faces showed the reward of the 14 new PBs that were set today. It was wonderful to welcome another Junior into the 10 Club, well done to Alanah Charge.
