Sometimes this is what is required to complete a task. Eighteen months ago the idea of a Park Run on Beverley Pastures was conceived by Kay, Nick, Louise and Andy. They were flummoxed as to where, the Racecourse said no! Nick states that Andy began running up and down disused railway lines, Kay searched through the Doomsday Book and the Old Testament looking for ancient rights of way, but all the indicators pointed to Beverley Pastures.
They worked extensively with the Pasture Masters, Council, Park Run HQ and after all their hard work, today was the first official event. The Park Run is a community event and will now be run every Saturday at 09:00 and no one is safe 😉 Not even the children, so we anointed Andy as Race Director and the people began to arrive all 419 of them!
Even the Princess has got the bug 😉 we helped set up, marshal and pack down but volunteering for this event is actually a privilege when you read the reviews and praise we received.
So, a great start to an event that I believe will endure for years to come. The cows didn’t seem to mind and after the pack down the tranquility of the Westwood Pastures returned once more.
