Bushy Inter-Church Mob Match (Mar 2016)

Thank you all so much for coming: 10 ran for Chiltern, 7 for Good Shepherd, 11 for St Patrick’s, 9 for Holy Trinity Church Wallington, 3 for Emmanuel, 6 for Refresh and 11 for Selsdon Baptist – 57 runners in total.

Our last Bushy mob match was the last ever running of that particular course at Bushy – the new course is rather nice, and maybe rather quick!

In all 1060 people ran Bushy parkrun that day, and we were spread from position 8 to position 1054!

Bushy Refreshed – March 19th

A message from Mark;

As you probably know Bushy is the home of parkruns and now attracts over 1100 every week, yes really! It’s a lovely flat one loop course with a chance for supporters to cheer and take photos of runners at the start, the 4k mark and the finish.

The aim is to create an opportunity for us to spend time with our fellow churchrunners and, more importantly, with our running friends at Bushy.

We, Refresh Runners, entered our first mob match at Nonsuch parkrun in 2013 and had a great time with our mainly non-church team and 3 other churches, think there were about 50 of us. It’s great to see how you folks have helped this outreach grow. I’ve been plugging it on the UK Sports Ministries website and every opportunity I get.

Saturday 19th March, 2016 is the date and the address is Bushy Park, Teddington. The main southern side entrance is on Hampton Court Road, I can only find the postcode for the Palace not the Park which is very close and is KT8 9AU. It’s a 20 minute walk from Hampton Court Train station.

Usual start at 9.00am.
