March 29 2018

EVEN superheroes can’t stop the snow!

 The successful Pomphrey Hill Parkrun had to postpone its fourth birthday celebrations thanks to the Beast from the East.But the runners donned their hero suits a week later to mark the milestone. More than 300 took part in the celebration event on March 10.

Parkrun is a free 5k event that takes place at venues across the country every Saturday - weather permitting - at 9am. 

There are now also Junior Parkruns on Sundays, including  Page Park and Eastville Park.

Since the Pomphrey Hill parkrun began, more than 7,000 people have taken part and between them they have completed 45,813 parkruns covering a total distance of 229,065 km.
