Latest Beginner's Course Graduation parkrun 24th December 2016

I've never seen Lee on Solent parkrun so busy, over 500 runners took part on Saturday which included our latest runners who have just completed the 8 week RunVerity beginner's course.  So many of the beginner's achieved their goal of running 5km and it was a great atmosphere with lots of people dressed up in festive gear.

Here are a few quotes from the latest group

 "I seldom post on Facebook about myself but if anyone asked me what I would be doing Christmas Eve morning, a 5k park run would not have been on my Christmas list. I did it, I ran all the way.

"Happy with that 🏃🏻‍♀️#firstparkrundone. Thank you, Verity ... think you're helping me finally change my life!"

"At the beginning of September I joined a beginners running group. I didn't run, not at all! Three and a half months on, I've met the best running coach in the world (Verity Wright), a lovely group of ladies, I've done a 5k Charity Elf Run and today I did my first ever 5k Park Run. I ran the whole 5k both times"
