Doddington Hall parkrun
Event number 6
29th February 2020
Ciara, Dennis and Jorge – no storm system will disrupt the Doddington Hall parkrun magic not even on a 'Leap Day'
This month seems to have been relentless with one storm system after another, yet our fantastic team of hardy volunteers brace all weather conditions to ensure Doddington Hall parkrun remains on for our community.
This Saturday was a special event in the parkrun calendar. It was the first Saturday 'Leap Day' parkrun in the 15 year history of parkrun. Interestingly the next Saturday 'Leap Day' parkrun will not happen again until 2048. Hopefully we should all be carbon neutral by then!

Please give a warm welcome to our new Run Director Anna who will be leading from the front this weekend for the first time. We wish Anna all the best!
This coming Saturday 7th March is a special event for parkrun as we will be supporting #ThisGirlCan campaign, with our global parkrun friends, to celebrate International Women’s Day.
Please bring along a female friend, colleague, or family member and walk, jog, run or volunteer together for #IWDparkrun
