After months of cancellations and no park run events due to the Covid-19, the 5k community run is soon set to return in the UK and in Barrow.

It is nine years since the national weekly run was launched in Barrow, with the first being back in 2011.

The event has been a lifeline for some people, with those taking part ranging from serious runners to fun runners, to those wanting to get fit.

The event has attracted thousands in Barrow and hundreds of thousands across the UK since it was first launched.

Back in 2013, the runners of Barrow got together to celebrate the second anniversary of the run, with regulars donning fancy dress and other guises to take on the 5k fun run.
