Run Report #68, 25th March 2017.

This morning I woke up to find the sun splitting the trees and to my delight the weather was to keep nice and warm for the day yippee!! A big change from the mucky and wet weather last week.

A big congrats to Ace Fit who joined us at Castletown parkrun, some who were completing their first 5k.


Overall we concluded another successful parkrun with 224 people, of whom 27 were first timers and 48 recorded new personal bests. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part.

A big thank you to the amazing volunteers without them, we would have no parkrun. If anyone is interested in volunteering please email and full training will be provided on the day.
