💚🖤 I hope this report gives a good balance between serious and fun, I’m still working on trying to find out how to get PBs which would be great to include. We can’t include all achievements and some data is impossible or at least very difficult to get. Hopefully this serves as a celebratory round-up and overview of Vegan Runners’ parkrun experiences and gives everyone a random chance of a mention. Have a wonderful week! Keep running and repping! 💚🖤
