Barrow parkrun 349

Barrow parkrun 349

This weeks parkrun celebrated two double centurion runs for Donna Spiers and Jeff Crosthwaite, whilst this isn't a milestone that is rewarded with a T-shirt, it is regarding as a major achievement.  Both Jeff and Donna took part in the first Barrow parkrun on 24th September 2011.

We also celebrated the 9th birthday of one of our marshals, Poppy Ashton.  Hope you had a lovely birthday. There was plenty of cakes and biscuits to celebrate both events at the cafe after the run where we all meet for a chat in the sunshine.

Tourists descended on us from near and far on Saturday as we welcomed people from Rushcliffe, London and Sydney Australia.  We hope you loved our undulating course and we hope to see you again.

Don't forget, date for your diary- Saturday 28th July Purple parkrun day.

Barrow parkrun event #345 – 09th June 2018

201 parkrunners attended this weeks event, marking the 70th birthday of the NHS we had some NHS staff in uniform taking on the 3.1 mile 5km event.

345 NHS staff

The event begins with a pre-run briefing at the bandstand at 08:50 every Saturday this week the briefing included some words of inspiration from Stuart Wallace of how the NHS has affected the lives of so many. It was lovely to also see Gordon Gibson back in running gear taking part after major surgery earlier this year.

Stuart Wallace, Ann Horton, Owen Baxendale, Clare Greenwood, Sian Littlemore, Laura Leigh, David Farish, Michael Cook, Michele Ashton, Fred Bagley, Leeann Evans, Ian Sadler, Sarah Cubiss and Donna Bates.
If you'd like to volunteer please get in touch with the event directly, just send an email to barrowhelpers@parkrun.com. If you're a regular parkrunner please help by taking a turn now and then.
Taking part in parkrun for the 1st time this week were Martin Beddoes, Nathan Smith and Oliver Barker. Welcome to the parkrun community. Tourists from Lancaster, Stockton On Tees, Ormskirk and Barnsley joined us and we hope Barrow was a memorable event for them.
The weather was glorious for parkrun this week, the sun was out and by 09:00 we were all running around the park in it. There's people of all ages and abliities who take part, their reasons for doing so are as diverse as the parkrunners themselves. 27 determined characters achieved personal best times, 17 of which where by the ladies. The Geese have yet to register and did not complete the course.

345 Geese

 

It's a great achievment to reach a milestone and event 345 saw Philip Lowe complete his 100th parkrun and a 50th parkrun for Kirsten Johnson only 5 seconds off matching her personal best time. A milestone run is rewarded with a new tshirt, red for a 50, black for 100. Be sure to order yours Phil and Kirsten. Well done.
