Barrow Parkrun, event 49, September 1
ANEW Parkrun record was set on a balmy Saturday morning as 82 runners, walkers and joggers took part.
The group were made up of 14 first timers and some Parkrun tourists.
Of the 82 runners there were representatives from four local running clubs.
Next week there will be a further incentive to hopefully smash your personal best, as Parkrun has agreed to donate 2p to charity, for every five seconds that people knock off their personal best.
If you take into account of all the other Parkruns held all over the country, every 2p could add up to a substantial donation.
So to all you Parkrunners, please try and make an effort this Saturday and make it the biggest family Parkrun ever.
This week’s new personal best times were achieved by Lee Procter, Daniel Pocklington, Karen Ann Maggio-Poyntz, Sarah Grisdale, Karen Stretch, Jack Lyons-Hall, Danny Lee Holden, Christine Adams, Tony Benson, Kayleigh Bewley, Catherine Grisdale , Steven Hartle, Eleanor Graham, Suzanne Boyle, Julie Moss, Jeff Crosthwaite, Peter Jackson, Karen Allanson, Paul William Crisp, Jackie Fowler and Sandra Daly. Well done to you all.
Phil Waite, of Barrow & Furness Striders AC, was first in 16:45, his 11th win in 13 appearances. Simon John Stanway, of Barrow & Furness Striders AC, was second in 18:05. Danny Bouffler was third in 18:56.
Kathleen Crisp was first (10th overall) in 21:24, her 14th win in 25 appearances. Sarah Hannah Jones was second in 21:44 and Karen Ann Maggio-Poyntz was third in 22:07.
If you would like to run, jog or walk next Saturday please remember to register at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/barcode – print off your barcode and arrive at the bandstand at 8.45am for the pre run briefing.

Monday – meet in Dock Museum car park at 5.45pm.
Wednesday – meet in Dock Museum car park at 5.45pm.

What this Saturday session will provide is an opportunity for us to run a session in daylight (the dark nights will be with us very soon), you will have your times recorded so that you can monitor your progress, but most importantly of all we can have a good old chat, a brew, and maybe some cake in the cafe afterwards.

The sessions are suitable for beginners and will start from Duddon Sports and Social Club car park at 6pm on Friday and 5pm on Sunday.
