Congratulations to all who took part today on a day of sunshine and showers. Parkrun has definitely become an integral part of Fly 5k now, or perhaps vice versa, with people joining us from parkruns up and down the country, from Huddersfield to Southsea, Worthing to Dalby Forest, and way over in Australia with Damon and Greg joining us from parkruns each week as regular as clockwork.

We had 168 runnners today, with one first timer (welcome Joanne Kennedy), ten Fly 5k PBs and a total of 46 running clubs taking part, including the newly formed Spiders Running Club - yes, you can guess who! Full results are attached:

The hungover Fly 5k after the hosts night out! We enjoyed a beer (or two) and cracked open a really horrible old bottle of Cava, which I blame for the submission form problem! Thanks for all your pati
