Killerton # 438 12th October 2019

 Joint National Trust/ parkrun Working Party.

19th October 10.30am-1pm

Thank you to all those who have volunteered for this working party. It is certainly a great way to give back to the estate through which we run. It's not too late to add your name to the list. Just drop us a line via our email at

Word from Tommy is to wear stout shoes and suitable clothing. He will provide gloves and tools. Tommy would like everyone to gather in the main car park near the Toilet block. He will then direct us to the site where he will meet us with all the kit. Do also bring some water, a few snacks and your enthusiasm!

Family spotlight.

As you are aware our parkrun has many families who enjoy running our course and I would like to celebrate their stories in this feature. I have already approached several families about this and in next month I hope to start  publishing  their stories. If you would like your family to be included, do please drop me an email at:

with words and pictures. I look forward to sharing your parkrun stories

Happy parkrunning!

Run Report.
.....and so another glorious,wet, muddy day for Killerton, and if we think it was hard going today, think of Eliud kipchoge, breaking the 2 hour marathon!! What a super man!! I am still a little shocked when I see a few people turn up in road shoes! I think how on earth do you make it round our slippy ,wet course on a day like today, without falling over! If you need some more grip, please feel free to rifle through the box in the gazebo, and if anyone has some trainers with a little life left, please donate them to the box (it is good to share!!)
If like me you sometimes struggle to get out of bed on a dreary looking day like today, it is always a good plan to volunteer( there are lots of roles where you can run and volunteer). then you have to come! So not only are you helping your self, you are helping others too.
Well it was a great start. The main start field was not bad going.. the rest just mud and puddles! There was some great running from the juniors today, and some lovely supportive parents which, it is always nice to see!Well done all runners in hard conditions today and to everyone that helped, making it another great morning at Killerton.
