Christmas Day Barrow parkrun
Last updated at 17:26, Friday, 27 December 2013
THE Christmas present unwrapping was put on hold for those enjoying a Christmas morning run around the park.
Christmas tree, Santa, elf and reindeer costumes were all on display for the Christmas Day parkrun held at Barrow Park.
Some 60 festive runners pulled on their trainers to take part in the timed 5km event on a crisp Christmas morning.
Young and old got involved in the event, many of them who attend the usual Saturday morning parkruns.
Following the run there was festive refreshments of mulled wine and mince pies.
Members of the Walney Wind Cheetahs running group were out in force.
Christine Adams, a run leader with group, said: “There was a great turn out on Christmas Day and everyone made a great effort with their Christmas fancy dress.
“The Wind Cheetahs always make their mark. We turn up whatever the day and whatever the weather because people love it so much.”
Even after all the turkey, roast potatoes and Christmas pudding, the Walney Wind Cheetahs were also out running again on Boxing Day at a Hoad Hill Harriers event in Ulverston.
On New Year’s Eve this Tuesday the Wind Cheetahs will be having a run at Furness Abbey from 9.45am.
On New Year’s Day the group is holding its Tour De Walney run. The Walney Wind Cheetahs will meet at 9.45am at North Scale Community Centre at the top of Teasdale Road.
The run then takes in the promenade, Ocean Road, Biggar Bank Road, Biggar Village, back onto Biggar Bank to Sandy Gap, Mill Lane, Westshore and back round to the community centre.
