Run With a Tin

It’s Virtual parkrun time! And this week, there’s a twist. We’re working with our friends at Lichfield Foodbank to raise awareness and get some much needed donations to those in desperate need in these difficult times.

Run or walk 5k this Friday, Saturday or Sunday (by 8pm) and drop off an item at one of our collection points around the city if you can.

The Foodbank need any non-perishable food items and toiletries. They’re especially running short in tinned meat, custard and rice pudding.

There will be collection points at addresses around the city these are:
101 Walsall Road
37 Hillside
9 Ascot Close
7 Walnut Grove
11 Handel Walk
49 Shortbutts Lane
43 Blakeman Way
28 Lynfield Road

Do a 5k and let us know and we will include your time with this weeks results.

You have the rest of today and tomorrow to post your 5k time. It doesn't have to be fast and you can walk. Just post your results on our page to be included!

Spirit of Parkrun

This is the spirit of Parkrun, one of our Parkrunners is keeping active by doing her best attempt at 5km in the back garden. A credit goes out to everyone who is remaining active and keeping up the exercise routines.

Keep active, keep your distance and stay safe
