It was a cause for double celebration at Newcastle parkrun on Saturday, as Heaton Harrier, Eric Appleby, not only completed his 100th parkrun (joining an illustrious group of parkrunners) but also celebrated his forthcoming birthday this Tuesday (July 10th). But why mention Eric in this TBH report? Because Eric turns 80 years old this week, and is a shining example to everyone that age does not have to be a barrier when it comes to running (or exercise in general) and can still play a big part in our everyday life. Here’s to Eric completing his next 100 runs
Saturday played host to the 3rd race of the club’s parkrun Summer Series, and 15 members turned out to earn themselves points. Soggy conditions underfoot (and a slightly longer course to compensate for the closure of the Town Moor) meant PB’s were hard to come by, but nevertheless, the general consensus was that it was good to be back running again after last week’s cancellation. First finisher for the club was Sparrow Morley (18:25) whilst first female finisher was Megan Parkin (22:53). Well done to everyone who took part.
