Parkrun joined forces with the This Girl Can campaign to mark International Women’s Day this weekend. In the spirit of the day, Lanhydrock saw female runners outnumber the men, with 6 women running their first ever Parkrun. Girl Power!!!
Thank you to Lesley Taphouse for the gallery photos
“Raw, breath-taking, everything we love about the Cornish Coastline”
“OMG what a race – awesome, mud over my knees, very hilly, went rock climbing, played in the sand on the beach, and an ass busting climb/run/crawl to the finish. The views were raw, breath taking, everything we love about the Cornish coastline.” (Nicola Sinclair)
“Could only just stay on my feet in the wind so it turned into a 18.4 mile walk scrambling over rocks, wading through shin deep mud and getting battered by hail 💨💨🌨🌨💨💨 Great day though. Well done to all the BRRs that took part.” (Louise Richardson)
Well done all, for braving the elements on a tough, challenging half marathon designed to be a serious test of endurance. Ian had to make the difficult decision to pull out as conditions worsened, but he’s still a hero to us!
“Fantastic 100 Marathon Club AGM Marathon – found it really tough in strong headwind and a totally flat course – along Thames Path at Walton on Thames-but bonus was seeing parakeets screeching overhead”.
Congratulations BRR Women on your Looe 10 Team Prize: Katie Skea, Rachel Wilsher, Gemma Vare, Julie Oxenham, Helen Stevenson and Claire Barlow. Rachel Wisher picked up a prize as well. Well done Mike Reed for managing to carry the bottles across a runner strewn car park.
Hills did not disappoint. Thanks to Looe Pioneers for organising a great event
