Hogmoor’s Century

Wow Hogmoor I can’t believe you’re 100 already, I can remember when you were just 1! Now look at you all grown up, and attracting more and more people each week.  A huge shout out to every single volunteer and participant who has made those 100 parkruns happen

An amazing 351 people ran, jogged or walked the course today, with 32 managing to record new PBs on this freezing, icy morning. But didn’t the Inclosure look beautiful in the mist ?

The recent rain had added an additional challenge with the reappearance of the massive puddle by “Stonehenge”.  As one of the brave (!) souls who went through the middle I can confirm that the  water was seriously cold, RD Helen did warn us in her briefing that they had broken the ice on it earlier!

This week we welcomed 70 people who were taking part at Hogmoor for the very first time, 16 of whom chose to make Hogmoor’s 100th their first parkrun. A warm welcome to all, I believe our furthest travelled visitor was from Cardiff.

We were also visited by a few of our local fireman running in their full kits, well done guys .

Congratulations are in order to the following people who reached their milestones this Saturday:

Paul KEOGH,  Solveig STORE and Amy JONES celebrated their 50th runs ,
