It was a quiet weekend for road races this Bank Holiday but a busy one for Parkrunners!
Fortunately the weather improved for today’s races with Caroline, Steve King, Tony and Greg racing today.
Caroline raced in the Dartford 10k on a hilly course finishing well in a time of 46.35 and was the 6th placed lady.
