Run Report – Pacer Saturday 25th May 2019

St Anne’s parkrun - Event number 285
25th May 2019

 

Remember folks that next week’s parkrun at St. Anne’s in CANCELLED due to music gigs taking place in the park throughout the Bank Holiday weekend.

 

Gorgeous morning and the rain held off thankfully…  We welcomed 462 people this morning who ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 36 were first timers and 94 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 24 different clubs took part.

 

Such a treat for all our parkrunners at St. Anne’s with the awesome amount of volunteer PACERS we had pacing from 20 – 35 minutes this morning.   We hope anyone looking to reach a target time were pleasantly surprised with their times.  Huge thank you and well done all.
