I bet you didn't all know parkrun is back? I've missed writing my weekly review!
In New Zealand where the dreaded virus is under control and many measures have been relaxed, they started up again on 4th July and our own Ben O'Shea was there as he has been for a few months.
Western Springs parkrun
A total of 187 runners took part.

This was Ben's 4th run at this event and 6th in New Zealand altogether and attendances were around average in some and down at others. 10 events went ahead. They haven't thankfully had a coronavirus death since 28th May and cases are very low around 2 to 4 a day.
Well done Ben on being our first runner since 14th March.
Let's hope we can all get back soon in a safe way. I suspect cases will have to be much lower, but it looks hopeful for the first time in ages.
