Wimbledon Common parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 29/02/2020
Race Distance: 5 Km

With only 210 runners, this was the lowest turnout at Wimbledon Common parkrun since New Year's Day 2016, when 144 finished, and the lowest on a non-festive day since 24 May 2015, which numbered 164. The slightly inclement weather can be isolated as the main factor, with rivers running downhill from the finish and knee-deep mud on parts of the course (all right, maybe only calf-deep). For the actual run, the rain held off, and the sun came out while we were ensconced in the cafe afterwards. Well done to the heavily pregnant Melloney for showing up the wimps. Peter Metcalf and Clare Wood are handily placed on 299 and 199 parkruns respectively.
