Lairt Emit k5

– June 11 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm from Cricket Club

For the first (and possibly only) time, a chance to test yourself around our Time trial course, but in the opposite direction. So it’s down the cemetery hill, up Rievaulx and back up to the Cricket Club. We think it will be trickier that way around, but let’s see…

*Time Trials #2 and #3 remain unchanged.

Predictor Run

– August 20 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm from Cricket Club

It’s back again this August. Can you accurately predict your time around our 5K or 5mile course? No watches allowed!

March 2019 parkrun results

Parkrun report – March 2019

parkrun reportMarch 2019 saw our largest number of parkruns in one month so far this year – 112 – helped, no doubt, by the five chances to parkrun, but also great considering that two weekends featured abominable weather! The furthest distance travelled goes without doubt to Ruth (over 10,000 miles) who popped up in Australia – that’s some serious parkrun tourism.

What is listed below is: Finishing Position, Gender Position, Name and Time.

 


 

2nd March

Round two of our club championship meant that of the 40 Striders out at parkrun, 39 were at just the one venue! Boosted by our turnout and that of many SRG visitors, a record total of 625 runners took part. More details of this one in our March race results.
