Running in Faith – the National Virtual Mob Match 2018

Another January National, and it looks like we got a good turnout– but the weather meant some parkruns were shut for health and safety reasons – bad luck for last year’s winners Christian Runners UK, as that was often in the North – impacting on their numbers.

Nice to see several new Churches in the results – and even on the podium.

In total there were 170 runners (50 up on last year), across 57 parkruns (nearly double last year) running for Christian running groups/churches.

Obviously none of this would be possible without parkrun – so a big thank you to them.

Holy Trinity Hastings

HTH Runners (Holy Trinity Hastings) has got off to a really good start!

A few weeks ago we started a weekly Monday evening get-together in the park – there were 7 of us the first week, 16 the second, and 18 this week! Originally we thought we’d just trial it over the summer – we weren’t sure anyone would actually be interested! – so we’ve been really pleased with the turnout and feedback. It’s so encouraging to see people with all levels of running ability / experience enjoying the evening together.

Then, last Saturday 19th we had our first group outing to the Hastings parkrun – 14 took part on the day, including 3 parkrun first-timers.

The Tourist Weekend

On 18th March we have a ‘not a mob match’ which is us trying out a new idea; a ‘Tourist event’. Basically we’d like to encourage you to try a new parkrun, either solo, or in a group, and send us in a photo or a little ‘report’. It’s a chance to fly the flag for your club somewhere else, and have some fun with a new location at the same time. You could even meet up with another club.
So for example here’s one I prepared earlier;
