Park-OCherry Hinton Hall ParkSat 10 June, 2023
Level of event: Local
Type of event: Race
This was our last Park-O of the academic year and by far the hottest. The temperature must have put a lot of people off as it was our lowest turnout by quite some margin. It was quite pleasant running in the wooded areas though. Well done to everyone who came, especially one newcomer who ran all three courses!
