Barrow parkrun 71

The morning started with the presentation of the ‘converted’ 50th parkrun t-shirts to Mike Cook, Karen Magio-Poyntz and Sarah Grisdale, we look forward to seeing you running around the park proudly wearing your t-shirts, if all the runners who have been lucky enough to get their 50th and 10th t-shirt could wear them next week we would like a group photo, thank you.

The weather stayed fine for the runners who dared to conquer the challenging ‘undulating’ course, it is lovely to see that many people at Barrow park on a Saturday morning, well done to everybody.
