The 'Run'down - 28 January 2019

The 'Run'down - 28 January 2019

Geoff Beetham was flying the Barrow Flag at the Midland Cross Country Championships completing the course in 45:50 to finish 78th. A strong contingent ran the Forest Rec Parkrun, part of the Club Winter Championships. James Smith was 2nd overall; Emily Ault was 1st Lady, plus Louise Harman, Karen Bell and Fiona Mee were 3rd, 4th and 5th Lady respectively.

A good morning's running and it was also great to support the 5k Your Way, Move Against Cancer Initiative (established by Gemma Hillier-Moses) which takes place monthly alongside the regular Parkrun.
