Event 23 – 2nd November 2019

Now that we are in November, we are delighted to announce that we intend to hold two additional festive parkruns on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day - these will both start at the usual time of 09:30am. Watch out for more details.

Our event co-director Karen Kilpatrick celebrated her birthday yesterday and we all appreciated her commitment at our event while nursing a recent injury.


One of our regular volunteers Gillian Stapely has informed us that she’s joined the Volunteer Club on 25 different occasions. Gillian along with her son, Michael is often is seen down on the course at the ‘TellyTubby’ horn cheering everyone on. Michael himself has recently joined the club and an inspiration to us.
