On the 28th November we celebrated our 200th event. What a great journey it has been from the 63 runners at our inaugural in February 2012. By week two the numbers dropped to 26 and took several months to average over 50. We did hit 100 on our first anniversary and have had in excess of 200 on three occasions. To celebrate the 200th event we had pacers - many supplied by GoodGym. All the photos - thanks Alex - can be found at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/mileend/photos/
Over Christmas there are extra opportunities to run parkruns. At Mile End we will be having all the usual Saturday runs but no extras:
19th Dec Christmas parkrun - wear your santa hat or christmas jumper
26th Dec usual run
1st Jan - looking at doing the double. Either Grovelands or Hampstead Heath followed by Oak Hill
2nd Jan usual run
6th Feb - 4th birthday celebrations
Thanks to all the volunteers who have made this event possible. There is now a club tshirt for volunteers. A lovely purple t-shirt gained after volunteering at 25 events.
