Gorleston Cliffs parkrun

The Boxing Day run saw an all-time record entry of 58 participants, many of whom many were colourfully attired in seasonal fancy dress. They certainly made a festive spectacle along the cliffs and promenade. The winner was Johnny Lee of City of Norwich AC in 18:21 and the leading lady, also with the best percentage performance of the day, was Karen Archbold of Lowestoft RR in 20:48.

It was a pleasure to welcome several visiting parkrunners from foreign parts and it seems the Gorleston event is on the national circuit as “ a good one to do”.

The morning was ideal for post-Christmas exercise and was followed by free mince pies at the Marina Bay café.

The new year will see a continuation, every Saturday morning at 9am, of this free event which is open to all regardless of fitness or anything else. It is certainly a good way to get fitter. All that is required is to register on the park run website before doing your first event.

May we wish all our entrants and volunteers a very happy and healthy

new year.
