This week 168 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 10 were first timers and 26 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 7 different clubs took part.  It was a milestone event for David Morris who completed his 100th, Lisa Stronach completed her 50th and junior runners Katie Dawson and Daniel Donnelly who ran their 10th run, we all enjoyed the cakes and gingerbread at the cafe after .  Thank you very much.

The event was made possible by 24 volunteers, thank you to the following people.  Without these volunteers the run would not be able to take place.  If you are able to help next Saturday can you please reply to your email, we may be short of volunteers due to people taking part in the K2B and C2B.  Thank you.

A date for your diary is Saturday 27th May, when the runners and volunteers will be turning Barrow park purple to honour Alice Pyne, this is a yearly event and it would be great to try to beat our course attendance of 208 which was set on 22nd August 2015.

A further date for your diary is Saturday 24th June, when it is Junior parkrun day and we turn over our event to all our junior runners.  If you are able to help on that day can you please let us know.

We welcome children at parkrun. Please note that those under the age of 11 must be within arm's reach of a parent, guardian or designated adult of the parents' choice whilst attending 5k parkrun events. It must also be ensured that children place themselves appropriately at the start so as to prevent a situation where they are being repeatedly overtaken. This is to ensure the safety of your child.

See you all soon
