King's Lynn parkrun celebrates it's 5th Birthday on Sat 10th Sep 16 and will again be holding a 24 hour Marathon event on the same day.
The idea for the event is to raise funds for the Walks to purchase new park benches and runners will be asked to run 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 parkrun and 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.
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 nodoubt remember what a great time everybody had, in joining together to put something back into the Walks.
King's Lynn parkrun will celebrate its 250th run on Sat 11th June 16 and to mark the occasion is asking all who have a milestone tee shirt, whether for running or volunteering to wear it to celebrate the event.
As this is also the day of HM Queen's Birthday Parade we thought we would could mark the occasion by asking our runners to wear anything of their choosing with a 'royal' connection and bringing cakes for our very own after run Street Party.
See you all there.
