This Week's Race Summary

Despite the conditions we had a record attendance for a parkrun GP event - 89 (plus 4 Juniors) adding substantially to the overall numbers at Rotherham. The course wasn't flat but nevertheless there were some decent times. Graham Beardsley was there to capture superb photos as usual with several 'jumpers' trying to feature on the 2021 Calendar. In total we had 114 parkrunners (another record) at 6 events.Sally Morris became our first member at Harcourt Hill, Oxford.
