Editor’s Note: Last week there was heavy rain in Palmerston North which led to a much lower turnout than normal (they were 120% lower than the previous week). This week’s attendance is back to a normal week. Please contact me at runswithabarcode@gmail.com if you are able to explain a swing in either direction.
