Folkestone parkrun started on 16th August 2014. Since then 5,117 participants have completed 40,829 parkruns covering a total distance of 204,145 km, including 7,220 new Personal Bests. That's nearly 2.5 times around the globe!
This week 273 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 20 were first timers and 34 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 19 different clubs took part.
We had a bumper crop of new run club members this week. Conngratulations to Andy FOGG who joined the 100 run club, Jake HARVEY, James Slater WHITHAM and Terry FRY who joined the 50 run club and Evie READINGS, Millie SMYTHE, Natasha GRANT and Rupert HOWELL who all joined the 10 run club.
The event was made possible by 20 volunteers:
Maggi ROSE • Max RANSLEY • Peter MANDER • Julia MANDER • Nikki GOODWIN • David DENYER • Ross CARTER • Stephen COMFORT • Simon READ • Sheila EADE • Graham COOMBS • Derek MCDONOUGH • William BAKER • Marcia-Jane SHARP • Collette WINDSOR • Derek KEDWELL • Lynsey TIGHY • Justin TIGHY • Ashton TIGHY • Del HOBSON
A total of 534 individuals have volunteered 4,089 times at Folkestone parkrun. Why not join them? We provide full training and it doesn't mean you don't have to run as we need volunteers to do the New Runner Briefing before the run and sort the tokens afterwards.
