Park Run

Colchester Park Run

Thanks to all 42 Harriers who were volunteers at the Colchester Castle Park run, which we were staging for the 4th or maybe 5th time. 340 runners came to the line, an incredible turn out for this super weekly event, which inspires more people to get running then any of the high profile London Games legacy efforts will ever do.

Special thanks to Pete West and Dan Foster who were the early birds to set up the course as dawn was breaking!

Not only did we marshal, but we also supplied 15 Pace makers to encourage runners to go for their personal bests.

Danny Millward, who was the 18 minute Pace maker, won the event in 18:04, while Amanda Henry was first lady in 20:30

Other races

At the Tunbridge Wells Park run Martyn Clarke swept to victory in his 50th different venue for these events in 19:50.
