On 27th September in the review of the Community Led Plan Questionnaire, it was identified (among many other points) that a number of submissions had indicated they would like it if a Wardington running club was set up.
I too enjoy running as a form of fitness and although at the moment do not have the time to organise a Wardington running club as such, I thought it worthwhile to bring to the attention of those interested, the newly set-up Banbury parkrun.
parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs in parks around the the country, and rely on volunteers to organise each event. They are open to everyone, are free, and are safe and easy to take part in. The Banbury event take place every Saturday at 9.00 am in Banbury’s Spiceball park (just 4 miles from Wardington), all you have to do is turn up and run! You will receive your recorded time emailed to you once you complete the course. This is not a race and is therefore a social and rewarding event allowing many people to come together and enjoy running. All levels of runner/jogger and all ages are welcome, you can even bring your dog!
I shall be going for the next few weekends so hope to see some of you there?
Finally last weekend, I volunteered to take photographs for the event, so if you would like to get a feel for what it is like you can view them here: https://www.flickr.com/groups/banbury-parkrun/pool/
