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 2020 TBH parkrun Challenge.
The Challenge will run from the 1st of January until the 31st December 2020. Members wishing to take part in the challenge need to register a run at 12 (from a possible 15) 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 15 selected parkruns for the 2020 TBH parkrun Challenge are;
Blyth Links (BL), Druridge Bay (DB), Fountains Abbey (FA), Gibside (G), Herrington Country Park (HCP),
Jesmond Dene (JD), Wallaceneuk – Kelso (K), Leazes (L), Prudhoe Riverside (PR), Riverside – Chester Le Street (CLS),
Silksworth (S), South Shields (SS), The Pastures – Alnwick (TP), Tyne Green (TG) and Windy Nook (WN).
You can find a map of the events below.
The age-related scores for the best 12 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 2020, 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 least once during 2020 at any parkrun event.
Happy parkrunning in 2020!
