Here at TBH we are big fans of parkrun and parkrun tourism. So, to encourage a bit of local tourism together with some added friendly competition at 9am on a Saturday morning, we are holding the 2019 TBH parkrun Challenge.
The Challenge will run from the 1st of January until the 31st December 2019. Members wishing to take part in the Challenge need to register a run at 12 local parkrun events over the course of the year. There are no set dates for visiting any of the parkrun’s and members can visit them at their own convenience over the course of the year.
The 12 selected park run’s for the 2019 challenge are; Druridge Bay, Newbiggin by the Sea, Prudhoe Roverside, Windy Nook, South shields, Gibside, Blackhill, Riverside (Chester Le Street), Cotsford Fields, Hackworth, Sedgefield and Flatts Lane.
There are no set dates for visiting any of the parkrun’s and members can visit them at their own convenience over the course of the year.
Once a member has registered a run at all 12 parkruns then they should send an e-mail to Vicki Deritis advising of the dates the parkruns were completed. The age-related scores for the parkrun’s will then be added together and kept on record. As more members complete the Challenge a table of completists (together with their age related scores) will appear below. Members can visit each of the parkruns as many times as they like and any subsequent improvements to age related scores will be substituted.
The winner of the Challenge will be the person who, after the last Saturday of 2019, has the highest age related total. And, as parkrun only happens because people volunteer, in order to complete the challenge, you must have volunteered at parkrun at least once during 2019.
The winner of the 2018 TBH parkrun Challenge was Kathryn Stevenson.
