We had a local running club in charge of the whole event this week as the members of Cleobury Mortimer Running Club performed a 'volunteer takeover'. For those of you new to our parkrun who may not know, CMRC are the club that provide the majority of our core team and originally got our parkrun off the ground.

CMRC Club Chair and Coach Jo WATSON was our Run Director for the morning and she told us about the upcoming inaugural Cleobury 10k. This will take place on Sunday 1st July at 11am and starts at Cleobury Mortimer Sports and Social Club. There is a bespoke medal and optional t-shirt. The race will be on closed roads around the town and surrounding countryside and features some of the area's best hills! We know you all like hills - so get signed up!

Details about the race can be found here: Cleobury 10k
