THERE was a Christmas cheer in Bressay this morning (Saturday) when more than 30 hardy runners lined up on a typically grey December morning for the last parkrun of the year.

Special mention must go to Magnie Williamson who completed his first park run at the age of just eight years in an impressive time of 28:11 for the five kilometre distance.

All results of this morning’s run can be found here.

The next official Bressay parkrun will be held on 8 January 2022, starting at 9.30am, but there will be an ‘unofficial’ one on 28 December to give people the chance to stretch their legs over the festive.

Bressay parkrun is the most northerly of the many parkrun events across the UK. Since its inception in January 2018 more than 1,600 participants have completed a total of 5,677 runs covering a distance of 28,385 kilometres.
