Christmas Day Report

This Christmas Day we had a new christmas day attendance record of 170 people who ran and jogged the course, of whom 19 were first timers and 20 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 32 different clubs took part.

We had a course record in the VM80 category with Harry NEWTON setting a new record of 28:01.

A big thank you to today's volunteers, especially as the run director forgot to call them out.

There were tourists a plenty from Norwich, Dogellau, Scotland, Surrey, Cambridge, Hertfordshire, Sheffield, Shropshire, Great Yarmouth and even as far afield as Hanley. Thank you for visiting us.

Well done everyone and thanks for turning out on Christmas day.

Congleton Christmas Plans

Hi all,

The festive period is a time to get in some extra runs towards the next shirt milestone. The schedule at congleton is as follows:

23rd December - Christmas Fancy Dress Run - 9am start
25th December - Christmas Day extra run - 9am start
30th December - Last Run of 2017 - 9am start
1st January 2017 - New Year's Day extra run - 9am start. Please note: New Year's Day is the only day where you can run two separate parkruns - our nearest neighbours at Hanley will be starting at 10:00am on New Year's Day.

We need volunteers to make the events happen, so please drop us a mail if you want to volunteer on any of these dates.




Christmas 2017 and New Years Day 2018 Events

You will be pleased to know that the Congleton parkrun team have decided to run the events on Christmas Day and New Years Day, both starting at our usual time of 09:00.

We need volunteers for both days.

For those keen park runners, the Hanley event starts at 10:00 on New Years Day so the double is on.


Missing Tokens

Did you run off home with our finishing tokens last week, 11th March 17 ?

We lost numbers 84, 111, 183 and 184. the runners were not scanned and I therefore can not trace you.

They are not a souvenir, our replacements may not scan as well meaning in future runners may not be given a time as they were not scanned correctly.

Please check you pockets and cars for any finish tokens and return them to the run director.
