Big turnout on Scrubs for 149th Parkrun
Charlotte Le Rougetel reports on this weekend's run
A chilly wind greeted us at Wormwood Scrubs this morning as the runners lined up for our 149th parkrun. Terrain was still largely dry. In fact, ‘too dry’, according to some runners. After months of us grumbling about the icy bogs, it just shows you what short memories we all have!
With 51 runners taking part, this was our best turnout for a long time and we welcomed a number of London marathon contenders getting a last minute easy run in.
Lots of luck to our own regular parkrunner Andrea Broughton who will be tackling the 26.2 miles through the capital tomorrow. And well done to Matthieu who ran the Paris marathon last weekend.
19 first timers joined us this morning, including my little sister Bonnie Mansell, who normally runs at Pennington Flash in the north west of England.
