Over the 38 months of its existence, Pomphrey Hill parkrun (www.parkrun.org.uk/pomphreyhill/) in Mangotsfield, South Gloucestershire has welcomed runners from 352 different running clubs.
In celebration of our common love of running and the diversity of running clubs in the Bristol/Bath/South Gloucestershire area, we have designated Saturday 1st July 2017 as a “Club Day” parkrun; all runners will be encouraged to wear their club kit for the run and Club leaders and members are welcome to bring club flags, banners, race flyers and anything else they wish to display/promote/flaunt.
We believe that “Club Day” will be a great opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones whilst promoting the benefits of being a running club member to those who are not members of clubs at present; children are welcome too!
We would love to welcome you and your club members to Pomphrey Hill parkrun; you don’t need to do anything to be part of “Club Day” except:
encourage your club members to come along
remind your members that to participate in a parkrun they need to register with parkrun (www.parkrun.org.uk) and bring along a printed barcode to the event
advise those new to parkrun that there is a pre-run briefing at 8.45am which will tell them everything they need to know about parkrun
bring along any promotional material to promote membership of your club or the races you host
Note that parkruns are runs not races and whilst times and finishing positions are recorded, a parkrun is more of a social run with friends rather than competitive event.
If you have any questions regarding Club Day, please get in touch via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
