TWO families of Horwich Harriers members proved how accessible running is for everyone this week – all in the presence of the founder of the ever-growing parkrun idea.

At the Ramsbottom Summer Mile, Paul Sinton-Hewitt, the founder of parkrun, was in attendance and the Collings family were happy to meet a man who has transformed running with a simple idea of timed runs across the world from its humble starting point in Bushey Park in 2004.

Alastair Murray was the club’s first place parkrunner at Haigh Woodland.

Luke Brindle maintained his fine parkrun record with second at place at Brotton parkrun in North Yorkshire and Maria Lowe was second woman at South Manchester.

The following evening at Astley Park there were four members of the Collings family running and four of the Wilkinson family also took part in the popular trail race.
