Pre-Resolution Party 5k

Start of Pre-Res 2On a frosty morning at the end of 2012, 120 determined souls toed the starting line of the Pre-Resolution Party 5k. Runners and walkers cheered each other on as the race started, and New Year’s Eve hats and sparkly shorts made the participants stand out in the green park. One runner even managed to keep up a brisk pace in a cow costume.
