St Anne’s parkrun #121 – Run Report

This week saw 357 runners enjoy cold but dry conditions in St Anne's for another excellent parkrun on Saturday morning.

For the last parkrun of the month we were lucky to have 5 pace runners out on the course, helping 125 runners achieve personal best times, so well done to everyone who improved their time and thanks to our pacing team for a job well done.

Big congratulations to our parkrunner of the month for February, Andrew Hyland. Andrew is a regular runner and volunteer in St Anne's (he was even pacing 25 minutes on Saturday!) so this award is well deserved. Congrats Andrew.
