The Fareham course is out and back and it does get narrow in places so all runners are reminded to keep left and stay aware of others who are going in a different direction.

The parkrun takes place every Saturday and afterwards the volunteers and runners gather in the Cams Mill pub.

See the website for more details.

Meanwhile, first-timers Andrew White and Andy Morgan-Lee were both in flying form at Whiteley parkrun on Saturday.
