Barnsley parkrun – Event number 123 – 15th June 2013

Sweatshop parkrunner of the month - June

We're delighted to announce that Norman Cole was the June recipient of our monthly prize, generously supported by Sweatshop.
Norman's prize is a free pair of running shoes fitted out at his local Sweatshop store. Norman's been a regular parkrunner since December 2011 he has completed 45 runs at Barnsley and has knocked nearly 4 minutes off his time since starting. We hope his new shoes will help keep the progress going, or at least make the training sessions a little easier!
