Hinckley Running Club celebrated its new home at Hastings High School yesterday – with a Parkrun takeover 😎The club and school have recently joined together with the school providing a place for club members to meet and train during the week as well as an area for a large container to store club kit and equipment.The container has been decorated in the club’s colours.A Parkrun – a weekly 5k community event – has been held at the school since March this year and Saturday saw the club take over the event for the day. This included organising the event as well as members volunteering in roles on the day of the event such as marshals, timekeepers and run director.A total of 138 people took part in the Parkrun with around 30 people volunteering.Club chairwoman Charlotte Sinclair said: “It has been very exciting for the club to have a new home at Hastings High School. A Parkrun takeover was the perfect way to celebrate this by doing something we all love and giving something back to our community.“As well as a new home, we have also recently launched a new club kit so the event was the perfect excuse to also put this to the test!“It was great to see so many people take part in the event and volunteer. Thank you to everyone who made this happen.“Thank you also to Hastings High School. We look forward, as a club, to continuing working together with the school in our local community.”

I just wanted to give a shout-out for the amazing runs our juniors had at parkrun this morning! At Hastings, Oliver C and Katherine left me for dust, both running sub-22 mins, there was a new PB for Matthew, a run pretty close to a PB for Josh, a 25th parkrun milestone for Oliver R (and his mum), and a first parkrun for Safiya (which was much faster than the first parkrun I ever ran)! And over at Braunstone, Maggie ran a fabulous new PB too!And these are just the ones I know about – there may have been more of you out there too!Huge congratulations, you’re all incredible! 🎉
