7th Anniversary Birthday Party
King's Lynn parkrun celebrates its 7th anniversary birthday on Saturday 8th September when parkrunners are encouraged to wear fancy dress and to bring along party food to help us celebrate the occasion in style.
It is also hoped that runners will allow time to stay for a few minutes longer than usual after the run to socialise and make new friendships with those you may frequently run alongside but still don't really know.
24 Hour Marathon
On on the heals of the Birthday Party will be the 24 Hour Marathon, which will go through until 9 am the following morning and for which runners are simply asked to run (or walk) the course for an hour of their choice until 9 am Sunday morning. Of course you can run for longer and if you haven't ever run during the middle of the night well now's you chance to do just that.
We also use the opportunity to raise funds for ask for donations towards improvements in The Walks and have contributed to a number of projects which have also been of benefit to parkrun.
The cafe will be open for longer for us and a Registration tent will be set up adjacent to the cafe, which will be manned throughout. All runners are requested to check in with Registration, where hot and cold drinks and snacks will also be available. This is the fourth year that we have held the event and so far we have always managed to have runners on the course throughout the 24 hour period, so please think about what time you would like to run and sign up to take part. Last year we collectively ran over 1,100 miles throughout the period so lets see if we can beat that and make this year as successful as those in the past.
