SEWERBY Hall and Gardens would like to invite all runners to celebrate the Parkrun’s first anniversary on Saturday, November 3, at 9am.

In its first year, almost 500 runners have taken part, with the biggest turnout on a single morning being 70.

Sewerby Parkrun has certainly provided an iconic, beautiful and challenging route, which has encouraged runners of all abilities to give it a go.

With an average of 40 runners each week, there is a great sense of community on a Saturday morning.

Paul Silvester, community sports coach coastal, said: “The special thing about Parkrun is its volunteers, who are the people making Parkrun happen all over the world. This is clearly evident at Sewerby by the fantastic team of volunteers.

“Without the amazing team, big smiles and constant hard work, this great weekly event would not happen.

“As always a big thank you goes out to them. There will be free cakes and refreshments afterwards in the Orangery.”
