This weekend’s parkrun was certainly a windy one. 162 runners, joggers and walkers avoided getting blown over and 24 people joined us for the first time including John Robert Richardson250_club_mini25_club_mini of Swaffham parkrun in Norfolk. He had a 7am departure this morning to join us this weekend as he completed his third county of parkruns. As of today he’s run all the parkruns in Norflok, Suffolk & now Cambridgeshire. Congratulations!

The first finsiher this weekend was Muzoora Edmund Bishanga in a time of 18:33 and the female first finsiher Faith TAYLOR10_club_mini in 23:15 who also had the highest age grade of 73.41%.
