Event number 307
19th May 2018
On a beautiful sunny morning a large number or parkrunners donned blue,red & black shirts to participate in Barking parkrun. We welcomed 4 parkrun first timers including our first finisher, welcome to Barking but more importantly parkrun Sean Bannigan, Jedidiah Rimell, Annie Mansfield & Gurvinder Kaur.
We had an impressive 17 personal bests including Sally Bridge(for the second time this month) and Joseph Grange who set a new jm10 course record, smashing the previous one by over a minute.For the concerned amongst you Joseph did not run without an adult as his dad Paul was the unknown finisher just behind him.
We know a few of you took photographs of the event and some fake royals who gate crashed the first corner, keep an eye out on our facebook page as we are sure some photos will appear in due course.
