We’ve taken Hilly on the road before, but this year we’re doing it decked out in specially designed T shirts, generously funded by Beaverteeth Services plant hire based in Plymouth and good friend of Hilly Helmet, Tim Burrell.
In addition to any other publicity we can create to promote our event, we’re touring 5 parkruns this year to promote our message even further than usual. I’m really grateful to our team for giving up their time to help in the lead up to this years’ event:
Sarah, Tim, Jo, Tim, Team Sawyer comprising Colin, Dawn and George, Judy, Georgie and me, Robin-Mark.
We kicked off last month with a warm reception at Shepton Mallet parkrun, though being April, it was still a chilly one. Lots of interest and a good team out demonstrating how anyone can run in a helmet. Collett park really is a nice venue, a traditional town park with a pond, a bandstand, a coffee hut and play area, everything a park should be.
May 20th saw us running in Monkton park at Chippenham. Another lovely venue and something for everyone, large grass areas, a cafe, a leisure centre and swimming pool right next door, a path alongside the river to walk (or run) along, a play area for the small folks, pitch and putt and another great parkrun, well organised and so welcoming, we really had a lovely time visiting.
We’ve three more visits planned b, so hopefully if we’ve not visited your local run yet then we’ll see you soon. Please look out for us at the following venues on the dates below:
Southwick – Southwick Country parkrun Saturday June 17th
Melksham – King George V parkrun Saturday July 8th
Frome – The Old Showfield parkrun Saturday August 12th
