 Poolsbrook parkrun

Saturday 18 February

 

A great turnout at Poolsbrook, not only did we provide most of the marshals and helpers for parkrun on Saturday but we also had several more members round the course cheering on the runners and walkers including 57 from NDRC taking part. It was great to see the yellow and red throughout the field of 274 from the front to the very back.  Well done to Sarah Johnson and her team for organising and thank you to all those who were at Poolsbrook to help, support or run.

Thanks also to Steve Kimberley who was on hand to take some photos CLICK HERE
