Barrow Runners

The 'Run'down - 11 February 2018

This weekend saw a big turn out at the Long Eaton Parkrun for the Club Champs, plus a Barrow Runners home fixture at the inaugural Leicestershire Half Marathon at Prestwold Hall.

Special mentions to Ben Plumber for his ridiculously fast PB of 01:13:12 (and 2nd place), and to Kristie Matthiae, Pedro Carvalho, and Paul Bentley for impressive PBs in some seriously windy conditions.
