MORE than 130 people took part in the first ever Parkrun Harrogate.

Organisers said they were pleased with the turn-out, particularly because there was a half-marathon taking place in York on the same day.

Parkrun is an international event where runners can take part in an organised 5km time trial.

Harrogate’s run will take place every Saturday morning on the Stray and is open to anyone to either join in or volunteer as a marshal.
