2019 TBH parkrun Challenge

Well done to David Cornish and Kevin Sorlie, the latest members to complete this year’s TBH parkrun Challenge.

That brings the number of completists to seven. Will anyone else join them before the year end?


What is the TBH parkrun Challenge?

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 parkruns for the 2019 TBH parkrun Challenge are Blackhill (B), Cotsford Fields (CF), Druridge Bay (DB), Flatts Lane (FL), Gibside (G), Hackworth (H), Newbiggin By the Sea (NBTS), Prudhoe Riverside (PR), Riverside – Chester Le Street (R(CLS)), Sedgefield (S), South Shields (SS) and Windy Nook (WN).

You can find a map of the events here.

The age-related scores for the parkruns 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 parkrun 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.

Happy parkrunning in 2019!

    I’m intrigued by this challenge (though not keen on travelling to those parkruns that are further afield, it has to be said…). Quick query: the website says we need to have volunteered at least once at parkrun in 2019 to be eligible. Does that have to be at one of the 12 ‘competition’ parkruns or can it be at any parkrun, please? Thanks!

  1. Hi Beate, thanks for getting in touch.
    Volunteering at any parkrun event will do.
    And the challenge organisors hope members will be able to car share for the parkrun events ‘outside’ the area.
    Or get up really early to use public transport.

    Thanks, David! Will get organized… ?. Though cos.of the ice and snow, tomorrow might look like a non-starter. But there are lots of Saturdays left in 2019! ?
