Virtual Mob Match (Sep 2015)

Our second ever virtual mob match, and this year we simplified the format a bit, so there was only one weekend to count runners from – this made for a smaller affair, but less cross-referencing trying to make sure we had picked the fastest time for each available runner. Despite this, we have still managed to be late with the results and report – apologies for that, ‘technical problems’.

In total there were 115 runners, across 33 parkruns (actually more than last time) running for 15 Christian running groups/churches – also we had our first ever international element to one of our mob matches, but I’ll come on to that shortly.

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

Roundshaw Mob Match (July 2015)

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.
