King's Lynn parkrun celebrates it's 6th Birthday on Sat 2nd Sep 17 and to coincide with this will again be holding a 24 hour Marathon event starting at 9 am of Sat 2nd and finishing at 9 am on Sun 3rd Sep 17.
The purpose of this year's event is to raise funds to enable the purchase our very own King's Lynn parkrun defibrillator. Those who take part will be asked to run the parkrun route for 1 hour each (or more if you feel that way inclined) for any hour period of their choosing from 9 am Sat to 9 am Sun, when the event will finish with tea and cakes.
The event will start from completion of the normal parkrun registration, with runners signing up to run for just an hour, at any speed, around the parkrun circuit, while making a donation towards the fund raising target of £1000. Details of how to donate have already be promulgated on the 24 Hour Marathon flyer and will be briefed again prior to the event.
The cafe will be open for extended hours and the support team will be there throughout serving refreshments. More details will follow and be briefed at parkrun but those who recall last years event will no doubt remember what a great time everybody had, in joining together to put something back into our parkrun.
