Parkrun NHS Couch to 5k results

They've changed the system for Parkrun results and they no longer seem to get posted on this site. Just out of curiosity I went on to the Parkrun consolidated resluts for NHS C25k for yesterday. If I've counted them up right, I reckon there were 36 of us out round the country. Considering we all were on the couch not so long ago, it's a great credit to the programme.

For those of you thinking about it, Parkrun is a great event. It's a 5k run every Saturday, free and you need to volunteer occasionally. No matter how fast or slow you are, you will be welcome and folk will be friendly.

Not done a Parkrun yet, (waiting until my fitness builds a bit; I'll give one a go in the next couple of weeks) but have registered and ordered my fancy barcode card/fobs. I didn't realise C25K had its own section in the club list; I selected unaffiliated when I registered but I've just changed it, so I now represent us C25Kers. :-)

Good for you, Miles. Fly the flag.

Thanks for posting these results. I didn't realise people were running under the banner of NHS c25k. Great idea for publicising the programme. I finish w2 on Monday so a few weeks off yet but when I graduate I'm hoping to enter my local park run and I'd like to do it under the NHS c25k banner. Do we need permission from anyone to do so?

Just select NHS C25k under club name.

Thank you for your kind comments, Sir. As I've just discovered, even if one has already registered with Parkrun and at the time selected 'unaffiliated' under the club section, as I did, it can be changed at any time. :-)

I came last in the Pontypool run yesterday, proud to be a member of the C25K club though. Still faster than those on the couch! :)

Well done Trizzy37. You are right there were a lot of couch potatoes in Pontypool and you weren't one of them.

You can run in any affiliated race under our club name. I entered a local one and got a discount for being affiliated to a club Good ey
