HARLOW parkrun attracted a bumper crowd on Saturday as it celebrated its first birthday.

The Harlow parkrun – a free timed 5km run that takes place every Saturday morning at 9am- has proven to be a real hit with the people of Harlow.

In less than a year, over 1,300 individuals have participated in the event and almost 6,000 total runs have been reached.

Saturday’s event attracted a total of 149 runners, surpassing the current rising average of 108. As it was a special occasion the runners were treated to a ‘surprise’ route, which involved running the course in reverse.

The Harlow parkrun is sure to continue keeping the town’s residents fit and healthy. To find out more information about the organisation, including Saturday’s results you can visit http://www.parkrun.org.uk/harlow/
