Mount Edgcumbe parkrun
Event number 200
25th January 2020 - 4th anniversary
Mount Edgcumbe parkrun started on 30th January 2016. Since then 2,937 participants have completed 10,057 parkruns covering a total distance of 50,285 km, including 1,541 new Personal Bests. A total of 314 individuals have volunteered 2,686 times.
*UPDATE: This means ROSS HARVIE completed our 10,000th pakrun over the Mount Edgcumbe trails!
Through four years of navigating craft fayres, high winds, New Year extras and weddings, the powers aligned to see our 200th run land on our 4th anniversary. And what an excellent morning it was too - you came, you sang and you walked, jogged and ran. Visitors from Taunton, Portsmouth and Alresford; Croydon, Clapham and Crewe, made up 24 first timers who joined us. Regular RD from Devonport junior parkrun, Luke Cameron, popped over to dedicate his 25th volunteering event to the first-timers briefing and Jonah Struthers chalked off 10 for his coveted junior white shirt.
Cake was shared thanks to the stellar baking efforts of Cass Bisco, Noah and Sarah Struthers - Noah's DofE portfolio passing another test - and Jon bought flowers to brighten the overcast morning. Of course, the smiles and fruity outfits of the 70+ others did the rest.
Thanks to those that joined us and for those that didn't, we're here again next week! See you for event 201.
