Event 268 – 14 March 2020

Autumn is the best time of the year and Saturday was a perfect example why. 117 motivated people, plus the all important volunteers, out doing what they love on a Saturday morning. It was one of those days when you feel like Forrest Gump. You get to the turn around cone and just want to keep going and run all day. Or maybe that only happens in the movies.

Some great results, a few first timers, and 15 people achieved PB's. Fantastic. No international visitors, I wonder why?

If you are a regular visitor to the website, and I'm sure its not just me who studies the results every week, you will have noticed the now familiar red banner with the Covid 19 updates. Parkrun has already been cancelled in 15 countries, the latest update will come through on Thursday our time, so there is a possibility of an indefinite cancellation at some stage.

But for now, lets enjoy the beautiful autumn weather ( 24 degrees Monday, 14 degrees Tuesday. Brrrrr ) and look forward to another cracking day and a great run on Saturday.
