The Tilgate Parkrun Wins Community Group Award

The Tilgate Parkrun has won the community group award at The Crawley Community Awards ceremony.  

The presentation took place last week at The Hawth where the Tilgate Parkrun was announced as one of the 16 winners.  340 nominations were received for the 16 categories which had to reflect the talent, sacrifice and achievement of Crawley people.  

The Tilgate parkrun is a free, timed, weekly 5k run that takes place every Saturday at 9 am, and is organised by volunteers. It is one of over 800 park run events which take place around the world, over 400 of them being in the UK.  Tilgate attracts a weekly attendance of over 500 runners and 40 volunteers, and the Crawley event regularly features in the Top 20 attended UK events.
