Cirencester Royal Agricultural University parkrun - 12th March.
Whilst the popularity of the parkrun movement has proved to be a resounding success for runners of all abilities for a number of years now, recent weeks has seen a definite upturn again as these brilliant events have regained their attraction through their accessibility. Like most running clubs, Bourton Roadrunners are regular participants in these events, including monthly social gathering at one of the several local venues. For this month it was held at the Cirencester Royal Agricultural University, 12th March.
