271 participants turned up for run number 499. There will be more next week! Still, Sue S had a considerable gathering of folk for her 'First Timers' briefing.
Eventually, everyone made their way to Alan'sbriefing before the 9am start.
I walked round with Andrew and Margaret, finishing in 49 minutes - position 266 out of 271. Sue was much quicker - she lapped me. Full results are here.
Afterwards, over coffee and smuggled cake, sorting the finish tokens for next week is a surprisingly therapeutic exercise.
I was able to direct the runners whilst listening to the English cricketers beat Pakistan in the T20 final in Melbourne.
