Barrow parkrun 368

The numbers were slightly down this week, this might of been down to a xcountry event taking place, Christmas events or the slightly cooler temperatures; however it soon warmed up, especially after the rousing pre run speech from our run director for the morning Craig Preston.  Thank you for the briefing and the encouragement when you kept popping up around the course.

We hope our tourists enjoyed our slightly undulating course and we hope to see you back again in Barrow.

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
