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.”
