St Patrick's Tigers
When: Saturdays every few months
The primary purpose of St Patrick’s Tigers is to take part in the 5K run/jog/walk matches against other local churches. These are held roughly every couple of months at one of the local parkruns. Please see this churchrunner.co.uk for details of the next match.
If you would like to give a 5K run a go, please do join us. This doesn’t have to be at a match. Members of St Patrick’s run most weeks; our most popular location is Roundshaw Downs. Most of the courses are a couple of laps (so you can stop half-way) and it’s OK to walk some of the way. Alternatively, parkrun is always looking for help with marshaling etc.
In order to take part it is essential that you register with parkrun – you can list St Patrick’s Tigers as your running club, if you wish. If you are running on one of the competition days, please let the church office know!
Please note that St Patrick’s Tigers is different from the other activities listed as it is not an activity run by the church. This means that St Patrick’s safeguarding policies do not apply and parents remain responsible for their children; please note parkrun’s requirements which include that under 11s must be accompanied by an adult.
