Saturday 1 January 2022 - Burnley parkrun, etc

The New Year's Day parkrun in Burnley's delightful Towneley Park saw all five of us pictured above enjoying the 5km parkrun in a field of 271 socially distanced participants.

It was a great way to start the year. Here we are, assembled before the start. Jessica has done numerous 2km Sunday morning runs, but this was her first 5km effort, completed with her mum in a creditable 40 minutes or so, not far behind Jacob - on his tenth 5km parkrun - and Sue, who went at a very gentle pace today, whilst I jogged on ahead to get a new 'Burnley PB' - not difficult as it was only my second run here.

Here are Sue and Jacob approaching the finish. Full results are here. Jess and Jacob also did the 2km run the following day, whilst I popped down to Wythenshawe to marshall on their 2km/5km Community Run, for which there was a great turnout of 118 runners.

Not to be outdone by her older cousins, 15 month old Isabella joined us later for a ½km 'race' in Fletcher Moss Park near her home in Didsbury, where we called in on our way back to Timperley.

She's not quite up to doing 2km yet. By next year perhaps?...
