This week, on a lovely sunny morning,114 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 17 were first timers and 15 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 10 different clubs took part. We had several visitors from other parkruns, and we need to say happy birthday to Johanna from Derby.
Nic Herriot was running as part of a world record breaking attempt on the most people to run a remote 5km in 24 hours - if you want to join in this belatedly, you're too late for the tshirt and medal, but you can upload your evidence from your tracking app here: https://m.facebook.com/events/919576681941860/?acontext=%7B%22event_action_history%22%3A%5B%7B%22mechanism%22%3A%22search_results%22%2C%22surface%22%3A%22search%22%7D%5D%2C%22ref_notif_type%22%3Anull%7D
It's also interesting to hear via Facebook that Karen Penny, a parkrunner from Newport, who joined us here in June 2019, has now reached her target of £100,000 raised for dementia research. She still has a few weeks to go before finishing her epic trek around the coasts of Britain and Ireland in Aberdeen. Karen has been including as many park runs as possible on her walk. You can find her on Facebook at Karen Penny The Penny Rolls On Walking Britain and Ireland.
