Christmas @ NSRC

What a year its been!!

We survived Lockdown 1 thanks to our Parkrun guru, Lynne Boby, keeping us entertained with 3 month’s worth of weekly challenges that pitted our wily Striders against the sights and signs of Newark; Ben Barnard backed that up with some popular virtual team time trials; and our leaders chipped in with a series of weekly training sessions.

We emerged from lockdown into our bubbles of 6 and have spent the summer and autumn watching these groups develop their own personalities and become the heart and soul of our club in 2020.

So, as we look towards 2021 and hopefully getting Team Orange back on the road, what have we learnt this year? Well, it’s the people that make the Club, the most important contribution often comes from the most unexpected source, and a little bit of virtual support can go a long way.

From all at Newark Striders, have a Merry Christmas and we hope to see you all at Parkrun again early in the New Year.
