Its hard to believe it, but next weekend will be our 300th Camperdown parkrun, and we think that deserves a bit of celebration!!
We've come such long way since the first event on May 19th 2012 with 106 runners. With 40,550 runs recorded so far, collectively you have ran 202,750k, which would take you more than 5 times round the world!
We've made so many new friends, and appreciated sharing your running successes along the way. So to celebrate our 300th run, we would love to get to know more of you, and get lots of you involved in your parkrun.
This weekend is pacers week, so we are looking to have pacers for every minute marker. Pacing is a great way of seeing the field from a different point, and helping out other runners to hit their goals. If you've not done it before, how about giving it a go this week? Just let us know what time you wish to do, and we can help with your timings.
We would also love it if we could have a band of volunteers this week who have never volunteered before!! Volunteering is a great way to see behind the scenes of how your parkrun works, and to get to know other runners. Jobs are easy, and we'll make sure you know what you're doing. So if you've been waiting for the right moment, or unsure about trying it out, please get in touch this week, and join us for the 300th!
