Also at the event, there were 12 first timers to parkrun and the lovely spring weather saw 29 personal bests.

Described as an "enthusiastic" runner by the Mayor, Sarah has taken part in other parkruns elsewhere and also took part in the Santa dash locally.

The Mayor, meanwhile, blew the whistle to start the race and waved them all off.
