Park run 21st April

St Anne's parkrun
Event number 229
21st April 2018
It was a cracking sunny day for all 443 park runners and most welcome. The park looked amazing, the sun brought out the best in everyone loads of happy smiling faces. A large enthustic volunteer group made the event run very smoothly and contributed to the great atmosphere on the day. They also made my job a lot easier. Thank you all.
Pia Penser celebrated her 100th park run. Christy Reilly got a special mention for park run person of the month. He couldn’t help himself but after his run helped in ensuring the smooth running of the funnel. With big numbers it is hectic in the funnel until all the runners come through the finish line.
