News

This week we were joined by staff from South Wirral High School who have formed a running group called South Wirral Striders. The group run for charity (mainly for Claire House), however for the month of November some of the group are running 60k for the Movember charity. We had some of the group join us at Croxteth Hall to add another 5k onto their running total. Well done everyone!

This week we were also hosts to the Croxteth Park Get Going Couch to 5k graduation. A huge congratulations to all of the graduates. We think it was possibly the biggest cohort ever as the start line was awash with orange hi-vis vests, such a lovely sight to see! Well done to everyone involved, runners, coaches and all supporters you have all done amazing. We hope to see you all at Croxteth Hall parkrun next week.

See you all next week!
