Crosby parkrun - 3rd Birthday

Crosby parkrun recently celebrated its 3rd birthday. The parkrun was initially set up through Active Sefton, and continued by a team of volunteers, headed by Event Director Jan Mullin, who turn up every Saturday morning without fail to provide residents and tourists alike the opportunity to take part in the free 5K event at 9am. Crosby parkrun is one of 578 set up in the UK, with a second one in Sefton at Hesketh Park, Southport.

Jan Mullin, Crosby parkrun Event Director, has given up her time to commit herself every Saturday since it started:

“We have just gone from strength to strength over the 3 years and this week we saw over 200 people take part. Crosby parkrun has a great inclusive team of volunteers from all across the community including pensioners and young people still at school, there are a number of different roles which need to be covered each week and we would welcome anyone who would like to get involved, we can promise some good times and cake! We’re so happy we can offer this opportunity for people, every week we experience so much positive feedback and hear so many positive stories. We like to think we create an approachable community down here at Crosby parkrun where everyone feels welcome.”
