It was a sea of green and black on what looked like being a very possible wet parkrun as the misty winds rolled in over the sand dunes this Saturday morning. However, the rain eased and the sun shone in time for the 247 eager runners to take off, and take off they did with our first runner finishing in a lightening speed of 16:03!
One such eager runner was one of our very own run directors - Greg Patrick, who celebrated his 100th parkrun today! Congratulations Greg, and apologies to everyone's eyes as the boys decided on a fluoro green and black mankini get up!
Thanks to all the volunteers and for the parkrun community for making this another enjoyable Saturday morning.
This week 247 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 34 were first timers and 35 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 20 different clubs took part.
