Barrow parkrun 372

Barrow parkrun
Event number 372
22nd December 2018

Barrow parkrun really got into the Christmas spirit this week, with most of the 182 people who ran, jogged or walked the course donning everything from Santa hats to full festive fancy dress. We Ho-Ho-Hoped you all enjoyed yourselves!
The weather was perfect for the run, which saw 5 first timers experience the ups and downs of Barrow Park. There were also Personal Bests for 10 of the participants, and representatives of 13 different clubs took part.
The 5k parkrun is popular with many junior runners, and this week saw three of them reach their 10-run milestone: Luca Messenger Jones, Jake O’Reilly and Ed Cush.

The event was made possible by 17 volunteers:

Sonja FARISH • David FARISH • Donna BATES • David SPENCER • Michael COOK • Clare GREENWOOD • Diane BRADSHAW • Sue FRYER • Dave GOMERSALL • John WEARING • Fred BAGLEY • Philip LEIGH • Kirsten JOHNSON • Ann HORTON • Brian LEECE • Niamh MCNALLY • Keith HERBERT

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.

Thanks, and have a Merry Christmas (maybe we’ll see you at our Christmas Day parkrun?)
