Beckton parkrun

On Saturday 27th September, Beckton parkrun will be having a coffee /cake morning. This event is going to be linked with the Macmillan Coffee Morning.

Please remember donations and wear something green.

At present many regulars have made a donation in order for Beckton parkrun to continue doing this for the foreseeable future.

The team at Beckton parkrun would very much appreciate it, if any runners that do turn up would kindly make a very small contribution to enable the coffee/cake morning to continue.

The coffee mornings will be held at the end of every month, then weekly from December.

Bedford Half Marathon

Last year Bedford Half Marathon was a purple half. It would be good to make this a purple half again this year. Runners are encouraged to enter online and let know.


If you are taking part in this week's ELVIS, thank you very much.
