What a super morning for an old run around the park. The conditions were so good that 7 people made personal bests over the 5k route. First time volunteer Lukasz helped set up the course, Helen did a smashing job on the time keeping and kept in sink with Yvonne on the tokens. Michael as usual made the scanning look easy and are two marshals John and Phil made sure everyone was going the correct way !!!
The aesthetically pleasing time of the week goes to Trevor Vaughan in a time of 23:00, Awesome stuff !!
