The one where Brian completed another run………………

History made, where were you when the Legend, Brian Platt, became the latest member of the parkrun 500 club?
After starting running at the age of 70 Brian found parkrun at Bramhall in 2008. This sparked a desire to complete all UK parkruns – when there were 123!! Since then parkrun has grown rapidly and, with almost 550 events in the UK, completing all might take a while, so Brian has settled on runs closer to home. Today Brian Platt completed his 500th parkrun at Marple and becomes only the 24th person to join the exalted 500 club.
It’s an amazing and phenomenal achievement, but Brian’s contribution goes well beyond the running statistics (28 different parkruns, highest finish in position 12 at Oldham, fastest time 28 min and 13 seconds) to his volunteering activity.
Brian, who is also a regular contributor to the fantastic work of the Friends of Brabyns Park, has volunteered on 325 different occasions and has set out our Marple parkrun course 300 times – of 327 events over 6 years - and is a regular Tail walker.
Basically, without him we’d all be lost – quite literally.
Brian, you are a parkrun junkie, a parkrun advocate, a hero and a legend.
Here’s looking forward to your 1000th run
