Barrow parkrun 384
Numbers were down again this week, but it didn't stop an exciting finish to the top 3 mens placing as all three men are juniors and finished within 19 seconds from 1st to 3rd, well done to our junior runners.
There was a few large puddles to negotiate this week which definitely made the going a little bit tougher than normal, the main topic of conversation was to either run through the water or round through the mud. From looking at some of the photographs taken lots of people had fun running through the water.
Saturday 6th April is junior week at parkrun when all our juniors will take over the volunteering roles, if you would like to help please email or message on the Facebook page.
Congratulations to Malini Kamalanathan who completed her 50th milestone run today, although not an official milestone Gordon Gibson completed his 150th run, well done to you both.

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
Mike & Louise Cook
