Ramsbottom Volunteers Takeover #Run 74 on 4th February 2018

This cold and icy Sunday morning saw 14 volunteers from Ramsbottom join our team in Towneley Park.  We saw 45 junior runners complete our alternative 'run on the grass' course of which 4 were first timers who we hope to see again soon.  In total we had 27 volunteers! A massive thank you to each and everyone of them as without the volunteers this event would not be possible.

Here at Burnley junior parkrun we would like to wish the new Ramsbottom junior parkrun every success on their parkrun journey.

Looking forward to seeing our junior runners same place, same time next Sunday, 11th February 2018

Halloween Little Horrors Run #61 29/10/17

On a Spooktacular autumnal Sunday morning in Towneley Park we had a fantastic turn out with 77 runners completing our 'Halloween' themed fancy dress run!

There were lots of ghouls, skeletons and little monsters running and even the parents and volunteers joined in the fun.

With the clocks going back last night we decided to take the opportunity and ran our course 'backwards' and reversed the route.  This created 15 new PB's and there were 4 first time runners which we hope to see again soon.

4 runners completed their half marathon landmark this week and we had our first Ultra Marathon (50 runs = 100k!!) All of which will be handed out next Sunday during our warm up.

Any parents with any pictures of this morning's run please share them with us on our Facebook page.

See you next Sunday!
