We're delighted to announce that Helen Guy was the September recipient of our monthly prize, generously supported by Sweatshop.
Helen's prize is a free pair of running shoes fitted out at her local Sweatshop store. Helen's been a parkrunner since June 2013 and has managed to reduce her PB by almost one minute in that time. We hope her new shoes will help keep the progress going, or at least make the training sessions a little easier.
We're pleased to announce that our very first winner of the monthly prize, generously supplied by Sweatshop, is Barry Gerard Murray.
Barry, who has been a parkrunner since July 2010, has ran all eight events at Blackhill, and has improved by almost 2 minutes in that time. Barry's prize is a pair of free running shoes fitted at his local Sweatshop store.
