Thank you all so much for coming, 59 ran for Chiltern, 15 for Good Shepherd, 2 for Sutton Christian Centre, 10 for Holy Trinity Church Wallington, 13 for Emmanuel, 9 for St Patrick’s, 11 for Springfield, 5 for the Salvation Army, 1 each for Old Lodge Lane Baptist & Refresh (Molesey) Church and 23 for Selsdon Baptist – 149 runners in total. The Roundshaw attendance record was previously 201 – set when we did our last mob match there, but was pushed up to a massive 256, amazing numbers, and we seem to be making a habit of it.

Shrewsbury parkrun Nativity Style!

Trinity Churches Shrewsbury joined in the Christmas Shrewsbury parkrun Nativity Style!

A group of about 40 of us aged from 2.5 to 60 years upwards got together dressed as the various characters from the nativity and ran the Shrewsbury parkrun. Not only that but we also sang Christmas Carols. It was a brilliant parkrun with so many getting in the Christmas spirit and other runners really appreciated our efforts.

Virtual Mob Match (Sep 2014)

Running in Faith a Virtual mob match

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.
