Parkrun Roundup

Slightly few runners than of late at parkrun this week (first time the count has dropped under 50 for a while, and possibly due to the bank holiday. Special mentions this week to Flick Sharp (1st Lady at Brueton), and to Juliet Jones for a new parkrun PB and 3rd lady at Brueton. Tanya Cronin is back in the PB update, with a new one this week at Babbs Mill. And finally, it was a PB double this weekend for Katie Price, adding the parkrun PB to her new HM PB on Sunday
