Saturday was what parkrun is all about! After 2 and a bit years of running, our very own Jill Perry was celebrating her 100th parkrun with many of her family and friends present. Jill started running a little later in life than most people, at the tender age of 79, and soon became a regular runner, volunteer and much loved member of the parkrun community here at Braunstone. She sent me this message to pass on to everyone who helped her celebrate her milestone run...
"I'd like to get a message to everybody concerned on the occasion of my 100th run, thanking you all for the support and good wishes and also decorations, flowers and cakes etc, on what was, for me, a memorable day. The friendship shown throughout the whole movement is second to none and I've made so many new friends, however I was overwhelmed by the support shown. Thanks everybody."
We wish Jill all the very best for her next 100 runs!
Julie, Mark and the Core Team
