Due to the local council closing off the suspension bridge heading to Glen Willow, runners lapped Lawson Park twice instead.

Nicholas Kastelein was the fastest on the day, finishing in under twenty minutes, while Parkrun first timer Alistair Fittler ran in second with 19:37.

Another first timer, Amy Penney, was the fastest for the women with 22.36.
