The RUNdown - 2nd December 2019
A chilly weekend with folks getting in the festive mood at the Nottingham Christmas Half Marathon and local Santa Fun Runs, and probably even more running round the shops looking for bargains!
Plus several hardy Parkrunners at venues near and far, including PBs for Richard Keep and Sarah Wappat at Lydiard and Peterborough respectively. Earlier in the week Lucy Bird finished second overall in the Oak Challenge completing 33.3 miles in just over six hours.

Boxing Day Handicap Race 2019 - Volunteers Needed
Please help us put on another successful and safe Boxing Day Handicap. We appreciate that people's time is precious, but we rely as a Club on the income from Prestwold 10K and the Boxing Day Handicap to fund and subsidise the various social events, and Team entries throughout the year. It is also a great event for us to put on for the local and running community. We still have unfilled roles for course marshals, around the start/finish area (mainly handing out water and mince pies!), and with traffic/parking.
Please let us know if you or a friend/family member can help before, during, or after the race. The first runners start at 10.30.
If you are one of the 31 Barrow Runners racing the Handicap, then please stick around if possible for the post-race clear up. It was a great effort last year to get everyone by 12:40.
Thanks everyone for your support!
Liam King (on behalf of the BR Race Committee)
