Stormy scenes as Oldman leads Parkrunners home

As Gorleston Parkrunners assembled on Saturday, the sky over the North Sea was black with rain clouds. 125 intrepid souls were rewarded for their bravery with a sunny route and, on the clifftop, a cool breeze. They were led by Bungay Black Dog Ted Oldman in 18.20.

The rain held off and 22 people attained personal best results. There were 13 first-timers including visitors fron Tyneside, Royston, Felixstowe, and Bedford. For those who are interested this is not a race, merely a timed trial. Walkers, joggers are made welcome and the accent is on enjoyment. Next month a Mad Hatter Tea Party is planned. For anyone wanting to start jogging or running please contact Chris on 669179.
