James Fox was the first runner over the line with a great time of 20:03.

Robert Yates came second in 20:14 and Robert Duff third in 21:10.

Marina Waterworth was first female over the line with a time of 23:15.

Brigid O'Dea recently turned 11, which allowed her to run her 75th parkrun on her own for the first time. She came second in 24:04.

Kim Withers was the third woman to cross the finish line with a time of 26:59.

A big thank you goes to volunteers who made this event happen .

Well done Mandy Benussi, Sav Giammattei, Cheryl Green, Andrew Green, Margaret McKillop- Lawson, Jennifer Morgan, Patrick, William, Alun, Grace and Mary Roberts.
