IT was another successful parkrun for South Cumbrian runners this week as hundreds of eager participants took on the five kilometre course.

This week was a volunteer takeover for Barrow parkrun as the Walney Wind Cheetah Cubs took on the volunteer reigns and did a 'brilliant job'.

Barrow parkrun saw 160 people run, jog and walk the five kilometre course, of whom 22 were first timers.

Special congratulations were given to runner Rebecca Sankey who completed her 50th parkrun on Saturday.
