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.

Running in Faith – the National Virtual Mob Match

Well this was the first time we’d moved the inter church ‘mob match’, in a deliberate way, to January, it looks like we got a few new year’s resolution runners – but the icy weather meant some parkruns were shut for health and safety reasons.

In total there were 120 runners, across  29 parkruns running for Christian running groups/churches.

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