Apparently, for a 7th anniversary we should have celebrated it with wool. For the 7th year in succession we celebrated with cake. Maybe next year we will get it right and celebrate with bronze ...
So what did we celebrate?
Well, Caroline McDermott and James Taylor both completed their 250th parkun.
Scott McNeill ran his 100th parkrun.
Jackie Boyd and Gordon Milne reached the 50th mark.
And we had Jason Perlroth running his first. Great credit to him - he came all the way from New York to do so.
We presented Andy Moodie with an award to recognise his 250th volunteering stint!
We achieved a new record number of runners - 335.
62 runners achieved new PBs.
A lot of cake was eaten.
Here's to another year.
Keep running, keep smiling and don't forget your barcode.
