Posted: 9/11/2016

Our next Park Run Tour will be at Stormont Parkrun on Saturday 19th November. Following the great turnout at our last tour, all members are encouraged to attend if they can.

We will meet at the front gates of Stormont at 9:10am for a group picture, preferrably in our Club Vest or T-shirt. The Parkrun will start at 9:30am. Parking is limited, so if you can travel together that would be great and if anyone needs a lift, please email and someone will get back to you.

Remember your parkrun barcodes and if this is your first time, please register here.
