The lovely folks over at CP Tri have kindly reserved 10 spaces for us in the Crystal Palace Triathlon on 17th May.

Parkrun competition update

Really Fancy Christmas Fancy Dress

It's even tighter at the top after an amazing Xmas day turn out and the double points really shifting around the positions

My niece's initial choice of the sprout head Alex Hill didn't count as parkruns are 100km too short for Alex to do them regularly so he hasn't entered the competition. ;)…
