A special nod to Tara Russell on reaching her 50th milestone with 43 of those runs taking place in Father Collins! Well done Tara from Team Father Collins!

And the aesthetically pleasing time of the week award goes to Alan Clarke with the palindromic time of 20.02 – this means it’s the same time forward and backwards, all I can say is WOW (another palindrome)…it’s on my RADAR that he finished well before NOON, this runner is at a high LEVEL of fitness and must have great STATS at different parkruns…
