Polite reminders
Please keep dogs on short leads at all times on the course.

Christmas

Hi everyone, we will be having a Bradford parkrun at 9am on Christmas Day!

 

WINTER UPDATES

Anyone who attended last Saturday will know how slippery it was at the finish area, in the winter months please check the Bradford parkrun facebook page or twitter feed on Saturday mornings before you set off because thats where I'll post if an event has to be cancelled.

I'll always try to let you know as early as possible on a Saturday morning.

Cheers

An ‘Olympic’ event

 202 amazing runners today!

If you have registered for parkrun but have never actually come along and done one, there's never been a better time than next Saturday 18 August, 

parkrun is involved in a great initiative called Join In Local Sport.

It's not about being the strongest, the fittest or the fastest, it's about having a go, having fun and just being able to say "I DID IT!"

Tell your friends, family, work colleagues about parkrun and encourage them to come along next Saturday.

Be inspired by the Olympic athletes, Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis, Dai Green, the brilliant Brownlees and Sarah Attar who made history as the first female athlete from Saudi Arabia, a Muslim lady proud to run for her country.

Join us on www.facebook.com/Bradfordparkrun for all the chat and gossip!

...Linda
