More than 220 runners braved the rain to take part in the inaugural Bramley Parkrun.
The fun 5km event, run completely by volunteers, will be held every Saturday at 9am in Bramley Park. And runners didn’t let the wet weather get them down.
Brilliant #bramleyparkrun, really well organised, great support and a tough course. No better way to start a Saturday.
