Bressay parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 13/07/2019
Race Distance: 5 Km

It seems summer is everywhere in the UK at the moment, except the Shetland Islands. The 9am ferry from Lerwick to Bressay was awash with lycra, jackets, scarves, and the odd bobble hat. Fortunately there was no rain, so once all sixty of us got moving at 9:30am, we soon warmed up. This was my second outing to Bressay parkrun with my sister who lives and works in the area, and a chance to improve on my time from last year when we stopped to take photos and admire the coastal views along the way. Fantastic hot drinks and food served up at the Speldiburn cafe afterwards, before the 20 minute walk back for the return ferry to Lerwick.
