Near and Far


We know that lots is going on behind the scenes but Oakwell Hall parkrun, which is home to many of the BRF Family, won't be returning just yet. So in the meantime why not become a #parkruntourist .... there's lots to choose from.

It's completely free to enter you just need to register first to get your barcode. Remember to select Birstall RunFIT as your group when you enter your details.

These weekly free 5km timed events are a great way to see how you're progressing. It's also a perfect opportunity to meet other runners and socialise over a celebratory brew.


Since March 2020, due to National Lockdowns, runners were unable to participate in races. However several of our members have taken part, and continue to do so, in virtual events organised by See York Run York and It's Grim Up North.  The great thing about virtual events is that you can choose the when, where and how. 

As restrictions continue to be eased we are now able to enter races, support each other with the training and celebrate those finish lines with a brew and maybe a piece of cake.
