park/Resolution runs, 1st January, 2020

Happy new year!

What better way to bring in the new year than a parkrun?  Perhaps two parkruns? Or a parkrun combined with a Resolution run?

New year’s day is the only occasion when its permitted to run two park runs, To facilitate double parkruns on new year’s day, start times are staggered. Unofficially, some have also run Leazes and Newcastle parkruns, one after the other.  On such unofficial occasions the parkrun police confiscate one of the results.

Congratulations to Chris Jones, David Wotton, Marga Burke-Low, Mungai Wairia and Paul Hughes for new year’s day parkrun doubles.  Congratulations too to Christopher Gillie for a parkrun PB at Thetford.

Congratulations also to Marie and Richard Slack ran the different type of double, the Riverside parkrun in Chester Le Street followed by the Resolution run on the town moor.  The Resolution run raises money for charity each new year’s day and is a two-lap, muddy, up and down the hills, race on the moor.  Cath Robson and David Devennie also ran the Resolution run.  Well done all!
