Weekend running galore!

What a busy weekend of running we’ve had now that it seems that winter is finally over!

The parkrun challenge last Saturday 7th April was at Markeaton and a lucky 13 turned up to take part, somewhat coincidentally all 13 happened to be first-time parkrunners there too – must be a record of some sort!

(Apologies if your results aren’t showing – this would be because you didn’t put your team as Holme Pierrepont when you registered for the race!)

Retford Half Marathon

We had a spectacular turnout for the Retford half this Sunday (11/03/2018) and it paid off with PBs smashed by Christine Heaton and Louise Read and first in category prizes awarded to Kevin Ford and Derek Poole, with Derek only having just run a full marathon two weeks prior!

Race results and some photos of the day (kindly provided by Bryn) below.
