As lockdown enters level 4, parkrunners have been making use of being able to leave their homes to fit in their 5km run or walk.
Peter Roos was one such parkrunner, who took the opportunity for a run with his partner, Edna Reid Ytier. Plovers parkrun #7. Glorious day for a parkrun, congratulations to Eddi for her PB on the new course.
