It was a really special week this week as we celebrated the 100,000th finisher at Durham parkrun. Regular runner Alison Foggon (pictured below) crossed the line in position 359 and thus took this special milestone. Alison has been a regular at our parkrun since May 2012 and has completed 203 0f her 213 parkruns at Durham so it's certainly fitting that she became our 100,000th finisher - congratulations Alison, here's to many more!
It was lovely to see first finisher Andrew Milligan back this week - well done on the amazing new PB of 16:18! Congratulations are also due to Dan Severs who joined the junior 10 club and also to Karen Byng and Paul Crilley who completed their 100th runs - well done to you all.
We continued to welcome a significant number of first timers to Durham parkrun with a fantastic 50 first time runners this week. Hope you all enjoyed the run and we see you back here very soon.
