Also amongst the tourists was veteran Gurkha of 25 years Bishnu Singh who is planning to complete 207 parkruns carrying a 22kg Doko (traditional Nepalese basket) raising funds for the Gurkha Trust. You can read more about his challenge here. We had a look at his stats ahead of his visit and noticed that he usually did his parkruns in around 29 minutes. We suggested anyone looking for a sub-30 stuck with him and he didn't disappoint... coming in at 30:03.
