Abbey Runners host parkrun
Sat 17th August, 9.00am
Along with other local clubs, Abbey Runners has been offered the opportunity to ‘host’ a parkrun event. This means that, as a club, we have to manage the run (marshalling, recording, timekeeping, etc.) and in return, we have the opportunity to promote our club and encourage local ‘Unattached’ runners to give us a try.
We will be hosting the parkrun at Hyde Park (Woodhouse Moor) on Saturday 17th August. The club committee (or as many of us as are available on this date) will organise the run (marshalling, recording, time keeping, etc.), but we need as many of you as possible to come along and run in the event (wearing your Abbey vests, of course). It would be great if you could chat to the runners around you and try to engage their interest in our club. We will have a stand at the finish, where we will hand out flyers, giving details of when and where we meet for training, the club web site address, etc. If you would rather help out than actually run, please email Club Coach Mark via the contact form and he’ll allocate a role to you.
This is a great opportunity to recruit new members and promote Abbey Runners, so please make every effort to be there.
