Event 449 – 14th March 2020

In these unprecedented times it was wonderful to have a little bit of normality in the shape of the 449th edition of Colwick parkrun.

49658427847_47b2e99720_cWe welcomed 196 people; 174 of which walked and jogged the course (including 4 genuine first timers) and 22 volunteers who helped to make the magic happen.


We waved to tourists from Southampton parkrun and Heaton Park parkrun at the pre-run brief, and were pleased to be able to congratulate Hilary on joining the 50 Club and Thomas on joining the 100 Club at event 449.

Thank you for jogging along. The atmosphere was incredibly buoyant throughout the morning, no-one rushed off, the cafe was packed, and there was a real sense of people soaking up the 'parkrun love' just in case... #loveparkrun
