Barrow parkrun 379


Barrow parkrun

Event number 379

26th January 2019

This week 200 people ran, jogged and walked the undulating Barrow course, of whom 7 were first timers and 30 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 11 different clubs took part, while Sean Roberts completed his 50th run.

As well as another great high turnout hitting the 200 mark, this Saturday saw new technology embraced at Barrow parkrun - an issue with the traditional barcode scanners meant that the virtual volunteer app was used by the team for the first time, allowing the volunteers to use their mobiles to scan in runners’ barcodes and finish tokens. A successful trial which “worked like a dream” by all accounts - the team no doubt are now itching to try out whatever future techie advances may be in store for parkrun!

The event was made possible by 25 volunteers:

Stuart John WALLACE • David FARISH • Donna BATES • Simon BARTON • David SPENCER • Michael COOK • Helen DRAPER • Jamie OHARE • Janice CALLISTER • Paula HERBERT • Sue FRYER • Dave GOMERSALL • John WEARING • Olivia GOMERSALL • Fred BAGLEY • Alan ROBINSON • Viky DONNELLY • Daniel DONNELLY • Stephen DONNELLY • Katherine DONNELLY • Ruarie COXON • Ann HORTON • Catherine PEARCE • Brian LEECE • Keith HERBERT
