Barrow parkrun

Event number 420

30th November 2019


A cold and frosty morning got the better of a few parkruns this weekend but after an early course inspection Barrow’s event was given the go-ahead, allowing 103 people to run, jog or walk around the park. 

Among these were 9 first timers, while 5 people recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 11 different clubs took part, including junior runners Sophie Leadbetter and Brooke Durkin, from Leven Valley Athletics Club, who came home as 1st and 2nd ladies respectively in their first parkrun.

David FARISH • Graham CARR • Donna BATES • David SPENCER • Michael COOK • Derek FRYER • Sarah CUBISS • Duncan MCALLISTER • Isabel BRYONY • John WEARING • Karen HERRINGTON • Fred BAGLEY • Helen HUGHES • Malini KAMALANATHAN • Ann HORTON • Michelle JOHNSON • Brian LEECE • Ian WALKER • Cheryl MERRIN-RANKIN
