Barrow parkrun 360

Barrow parkrun 360

It was back to the old familiar, slightly undulating course this week after last week's little run around our alternative course. We had 2 milestone runs this morning, Paul Baxendale and Marian Danson both celebrated completing 50 runs and will hopefully soon be in receipt of their reward t-shirts.

This week 153 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 6 were first timers and 29 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 13 different clubs took part.

This mornings parkrun was made possible by the generosity of people stepping into volunteer roles, if you would like to volunteer any week, it's really easy and there's lots of different roles to choose from.

The event was made possible by 21 volunteers:

Stuart John WALLACE • David FARISH • Donna BATES • David SPENCER • Michael COOK • Louise COOK • Gordon GIBSON • Linda CROUD • Andrew LEECE • John WEARING • Helen HANEY • Fred BAGLEY • Lorraine DICKINSON • Owen BAXENDALE • Sian LITTLEMORE • Michele ASHTON • Lynda FISHER • Cerys THOMPSON • Leah HADLEY-PAXTON • Brian LEECE • Maurice DUFFY

We welcome children at parkrun. Please note that those under the age of 11 must be within arm's reach of a parent, guardian or designated adult of the parents' choice whilst attending 5k parkrun events. It must also be ensured that children place themselves appropriately at the start so as to prevent a situation where they are being repeatedly overtaken. This is to ensure the safety of your child.

See you all soon
