A Sea of Yellow

Temple Newsam parkrun

Event number 341
26th October 2019

Despite the horrible weather, it was a great turn out for people to show their love for the Temple Newsam parkrun legend Terry Midgley,  who sadly passed away last Saturday. Many runners knew Terry for his enthusiasm and passion for running and he was a regular at TN, helping others up the hill to the finish. So it was fitting today for all the runners to stay till the very last person finished, helping each other in true Terry style. It was a sea of yellow as everyone ran up to the finish line due to many runners donning Terry’s record breaking yellow lifeguard top in respect to him.


There will be an official tribute to Terry parkrun at a later date. #doyouknowwhoiam so keep checking the social media channels.

A massive thank you to all the volunteers who stood out in the rain to make todays parkrun happen. We are always in need of volunteers to make these events happen week in week out so please get in touch if you can help.

Many thanks Leigh and the TN team
