12 and 13 November 2022 - More Running in Wythenshawe Park

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.

... and off they went...

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.

Sunday morning found me at the Altrincham Road exit from the park.

I was able to direct the runners whilst listening to the English cricketers beat Pakistan in the T20 final in Melbourne.

Next time around (second lap) the chap in the front shown above was well ahead of everyone else. It was a lovely morning for the Community Runners. The buzzard that I've seen over the past couple of weeks wasn't in evidence this morning. Perhaps the crows have seen it off.
