Difficult muddy conditions just added to the fun as Garden City Runners travelled north to Stevenage.
In total 61 took on conditions that were "swampy" in parts even if the course was one of the more-gentle faced.
The first GCR over the line was Rob Lawrence who was fourth overall while James Huish, Neil Hume, Rob Casserley, Bruce Judge, Chris Eland, Herbie Hopkins and Tom Wackett were also scorers.
Martha Hall was the first GCR lady over the line closely followed by Lizzie Parry on her GCR debut, Eleanor Newton, Cathy Widden and Belinda McGinley made up the other scoring ladies for the club.
The club's parkrun action saw athletes heading to the likes of Wolverhampton, Southend-on-Sea, Derby, Worthing, Exmouth and even Singapore.
Notable achievements included a win for Hall at Gadebridge and seconds for Huish at Grovelands, Alex Newman-Smith at Westmill, Jack Tann at Panshanger and Hume at Ellenbrook Fields.
