Burnsall 10 – Parkinson’s Awareness Walk – Saturday 20th August 2022 (Invite from Graham Ellis)

The Burnsall 10 mile road race has now run its course. – another road race casualty of increasing road traffic.

I joined Holmfirth Harriers in 1967 with the event already on the club’s fixture list, and it has remained so until this year. I competed in this event many times with my best performance in 1977, winning in a time of 49min 19sec – a course record. This time has remained unbeaten for the past 45 years.

It is my intention to complete the course one final time. This will be a walk not a run.

When: Saturday 20th August 2022

Where: Burnsall main street

Time: 11.00am

This is an open invitation to anyone interested in participating. This is not a fundraising event but is a Parkinson’s Awareness Walk. Therefore if possible please wear something sky blue. This is the colour adopted by the Parkinsons charity.

Hope to see as many of you there as possible.

Graham Ellis
