15 years of parkrun

This week parkrun celebrates the 15th birthday from when it started, you can read all about the beginnings HERE and if you want to know more about how Chelmsford parkrun fits in with the history of parkrun you can read our parkrun profile HERE

To celebrate the 15 years on Saturday, it would be fantastic to see everyone that has one, to wear a milestone tee or an apricot one.
