- Bretts Parkrun Roundup

Parkrun 24th November 2018

by Brett Rumfitt

Hi, here is parkrun report from Saturday 24th November just before the next parkrun tomorrow! I was away last week so that's my excuse for being late! Whilst I was getting wet on the Somerset Levels near Glastonbury, it was even wetter and much windier down this way. Therefore any PBs were very well earned. Some may have been taking it a bit easier before Sunday's Fun Run and Jon Olsen running the Downton Half. Others did various muddy races on Saturday too.

We were in SEVEN different venues last week.
A total of 485 runners took part at Swindon parkrun event #425 with a name unfamiliar to me.
