Christmas & New Year Round Up

Best wishes to all Postal Harriers and here's hoping we have a great 2020. With the last few weeks featuring a bumper parkrun programme it has been a bit trickier than usual to find all the results. We've registered over 60 runs between Christmas Day and New Years Day so I'm sorry if I've missed your result (unless you forgot your barcode!)

One thing that has stood out over the last week is how popular parkrun in York is with over 800 runners at the Knavesmire on Christmas Day and over 700 at both NYD double events yesterday. None of us recorded a finish time of 20.20 to welcome in the New Year with Jim closest at 20.22.

We are already behind one of our ultra marathon queens, Dee who clocked up 30 Hardmoors miles in 6hrs 46mins on their NYD event on the east coast. Well done Dee!
