Humber Bridge parkrun is cancelled on 2021-11-27 – Severe weather forecast and risk of falling trees.

Event #319

As the weather turns a little colder again this week, we were still blessed with a stunning morning in the Country park. While the trees may play havoc with our garmins (other watches are available), they certainly protected us from the wind.

This week 110 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 17 were first timers with 4 completing their first ever parkrun.

We welcomed visitors from York and Preston - we hope you enjoyed your time in the country park :)

8 of you recorded new Personal Bests, congratulations to: Daniel HICKEYOwynn BAKERMark CHATTERTONRob WOOLLEYAddien BAKERSusan FLETCHER ,Sarah FAWCETT and Allie ADDEY. Great work all of you !.

Festive arrangements 2021.

As Christmas is fast approaching, we have made the decision to release our plans for the festive season.

This year as usual we will NOT  be staging a run on Christmas day however, our Friends at Hull parkrun will be. You'll be made very welcome if you decide you join them and may even see Santa himself! .

On New Year's day we will return the favour and we WILL be hosting an event. Please remember that there are no New Year's doubles anymore so we will be starting at the usual time of 9am.

See you all soon !
