Over 100 fun runners, walkers, runners with dogs, walkers with pushchairs took part going around the 5K course at the Manor Leisure Centre.

Organisers were delighted with the response with young and old taking part and they are looking forward to the weekly gatherings increasing in numbers.

The sessions are free of charge and take place every Saturday with a 9am start.

You need to register before your first run but that’s all you have to do to take part.

The event is volunteer led and in Whittlesey a small group has been set up to ensure the parkruns work successfully.

“Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in the pavilion at the finish area - please come and join us,” say organisers.

“We all run for our own enjoyment. Please come along and join in whatever your pace.”
