Croxteth Hall parkrun
Event number 71
30th July 2016
parkrun is one big family and its great every week to meet more family from other parkruns from up and down the country. This week we said hello to Ellie from Kent and Nat and Dan from Chipping Sodbury and then from Aberdeen we met the Purcell's
John & Angie with daughters Eilidh, Kirsty & Caitlin. We have many families running together across all the generations and abilities. It always makes for a great atmosphere particularly at the finish with great sprint finishes from the younger generation.
Don't forget its the Kirkby Miler Takeover and Pacer Event this weekend if you are looking for a PB and even if you are not - it will be a great event with the Smiling Milers so hope to see you all! Position Token Amnesty - we will be leaving an "honesty box" by the bagage area for any position tokens which may have been taken home by mistake - if you have any could you please drop them in the box and we can return them to our stock.
