Roundshaw Comes Around

Roundshaw comes around…

Two mob matches down, three to go, but the very next is Roundshaw on July 18th. As ever we coincide with the Roundshaw Anniversary (6th Year) so there should be a bring and share picnic after. Our expected presence was mentioned only this week. There is a rumour we may be running the course in reverse, as yet unconfirmed.

Last year we broke the course record, be great to do it again!

It will also be the second ‘Walkers Welcome Week’ at Roundshaw, so bring those who only want to stroll by all means, up to 1 hour 20 is fine, very doable for just over 3 miles. Register on the parkrun website and bring your barcode in the usual way for those folks though please.

We look forward to seeing lots of you, and maybe even some new club colours.

Great Lines parkrun & Cornerstone Fit

About the author – Adam Voke, a Cornerstone Fit runner (also Cornerstone City Church lead-elder) has recently been awarded parkrunner of the month at Great Lines so he got a free pair of Asics Gel Kayano 21’s. Adam has been their most improved runner of late having shaved over 2 minutes off his time and breaking into the sub-20 times for a 5km distance with a PB of 19:53 recently.


Adam Voke, Cornerstone City Church

I went along to the first ever parkrun, at the Great Lines in Gillingham (opposite Medway Park) in September 2013.  I slogged my way round the free weekly 5K run with a ‘hurty knee’, feeling a bit sick after tackling the (slight!) hill.  When I got home I felt like I had run a marathon!

Seventeen months later with fifty-four parkruns done, more than ten minutes off my time and the fitness level to run half marathons every few weeks I’ve grown to really enjoy running and I value the overall health benefits.
