The week we had some exciting news….

Chippenham parkrun
Event number 312
28th August 2021


This week we found out that there is going to be some changes to the  Milestone T-Shirts. In summary:T-shirts will cost £15 incl postage, all over the world. You may order additional/replacement T-shirts once you have qualified. This is a game changer especially for children who grow out of theirs! Child sizes will now be available in all T-shirts. There will be a new Milestone T-Shirt of 25 to match the Volunteer 25.

And {drumroll} .......There will be new Volunteer T-shirts to match each of the Milestone T-Shirts, ie: junior10, 25, 50, 100, 250, 500. Some changes will be phased in, the parkrun community is a big one and everything can't be available for everyone all at the same time!

So back to this week it was lovely to see some of our regulars achieve their long awaited milestone shirts.


A very big congratulations to;

David Gearing and Jim Rudge for achieving their 100th parkrun milestone
Chris Ferris for completing 50 parkruns
Sophie Maxwell for achieving her 10th junior parkrun milestone.

Pete was in charge this week where 197 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 27 were first timers and 47 recorded new Personal Bests.
