Many thanks to all those who volunteered for SRC's parkrun takeover on Saturday 13th January. We filled all the volunteer positions and oversaw Ashton Court's second biggest parkrun ever, with almost 600 runners braving the cold.

As a bonus, we provided five pacemakers for those aiming for 20, 23, 25, 30 and 35 minute times. Despite the high difficulty of pacing a run as technically challenging as Ashton Court (almost as high as the hill itself), nearly all our pacers came within ten seconds of their target time.

This excellent write up from SRC's Jane Duffus is well worth reading:
