🔀 from Pocket parkrun

For the first time in what feels like for ever, it wasn’t bitterly cold as 202 parkrunners came to Pocket park for this week’s parkrun. Among them, 32 first timers (17 of whom were first time parkrunners) and 45 new PBs.

This weekend was the last in January and as such, was the last parkrun people could do as part of RED January. This campain by Mind, the mental health charity, has been a community initiative that encourages you to support your mental health by doing something active every single day. In 2018, the RED community raised over £1 million for the Mind charity. To find out more about RED January, and to donate to Mind, visit www.mind.org.uk/redjanuary

This week’s first finisher was first timer James Crisp in a time of 18:51 and female first finisher was Hayley Read in a time of 20:59. She also had the highest age grade with 75.69%.
