Congratulations to Ian Verity who, according to my back of fag-packet calculations, logged the 200,000th km at Temple Newsam! Together we have run almost 5 times around the circumference of the Earth! Well done everyone for contributing to this amazing achievement.
Other milestones included Annette McTaggart running her 50th and Adele Joanne Wilson's 100th with proof here. As well as our fifth birthday on the 3rd February there is another key imminent milestone to look out for too in the coming weeks.....
Notable PBs this week included young Harry Trapps (JM15-17) who took 20 seconds off his best to run 22:05, and Suzanne Harbourne who took 45 seconds off her previous best. Great running both of you!
