A TOTAL OF 149 runners braved the treacherous conditions to celebrate Fell Foot's 200th parkrun.

Organisers used the event as an opportunity to take to their winter course.

Helm Hill Runner Kieran Hodgson marked his 15th run with a slick time of 18:49.

Harvey Lord finished second with a time of 19:34.

Emma Johnston, another member from Helm Hill Runners, was the first woman to cross the line in an impressive time of 20:52.

It was a very soggy Barrow parkrun for the 122 hardcore runners who turned up.

But even the heavy rain did not hinder seven people who ran very first time.

Adrian Newnham reached his 100th run and Phil Horrocks completed an incredible 300th run.

Parkside Panthers runner William McAllister finished top of the pile in a time of 19:14.

In his 173rd run, Adam James Ward came second and Ryan Everett closely followed in third.

Millom parkrun celebrated another monumental achievement on Saturday as the volunteer coordinator Shelley Myers reached her 100th volunteer mark

Despite the sapping conditions at Millom, the runners were soon littered around the perimeter.

John Rodgers took the honours of first place with Jonathan Bailey, taking part in his 90th run, followed him home in second place.

Two first-timers swept away the women as Daniella Gray finished in a well-respected time of 32:05.

She was closely followed by Skipton AC runner Christine Buckley.

The heavens opened at Ford parkrun's 17th event but that did not stop 67 runners, joggers and walkers completing the four-lap winter course.

Tourist parkrunners joined Ford from Huddersfield, Croxteth Hall, Pennington Flash, Barclay, Markeaton and neighbouring parkruns Fellfoot and Barrow.

First finisher this week was runner Andrew Dorrian in 20:03, his 52nd parkrun event to date.

Black Combe Runner John Millen recorded a new personal best with a time of 20:10.

Jessica Bailey was a second behind in third place.

Jessica also scored the highest in the age grades with 80.68% and also ran her 10th milestone, a Tremendous achievement.

Organisers at all four events would like to express their thanks to the volunteers to come every week to make the parkruns possible.
