Virtual Mob Match (Sep 2014)

Running in Faith a Virtual mob match

Well this was the first ever national inter church ‘mob match’, so if you took part, that’s a little bit of history you were making!

In total there were 162 runners, across 27 parkruns running for 15 Christian running groups/churches – a massive turn out, nearly 50% bigger again than our biggest ever physical mob match. People certainly got into it and runners from Holy Trinity Wallington have already been asking me about the November mob match at Nonsuch parkrun.

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

Nonsuch Mob Match (Nov 2013)

Well the rain had been heavy, and there was a bit of mud, but it held off early morning and around 400 runners started off on their parkrun at Nonsuch in Cheam, a mixture of tarmac and grass, the course is fairly flat and whilst slippy in places was not too badly water logged. The rain still held off, and 385 determined souls finished their Saturday morning 5k.
