Saturday 18th October is a very special day for everyone involved with Sheringham parkrun. We will gather to run and celebrate our 100th parkrun!
And, as you made Sheringham parkrun such a success, we are encouraging as many people as possible to come along in superhero fancy dress, or, impersonating someone that you have always idolised. You could dress up as your Dad, or Bruce Lee! HWWWOOAAARR!! The choice is yours!
We are also looking for volunteer cake bakers to bring along a tasty treat (superhero or parkrun themed, or '100th runday' if you like) to share with fellow parkrunners after the run.
Who'd have thought back in 2012 that we would be coming together as a community to create such a consistently good sporting event each week, in stunning grounds, where kids, adults and K9's run side by side for fun. It has provided a platform for many inspiring stories of personal development, overcoming obstacles and making parkrun a regular feature for some people who would never have considered themselves as 'a runner':
What else have we achieved?
* 10,000 runs! covering:
* 50,000KM! (31,000 Miles)
* 5000 hours of running
* 2000 individual runners!
* 2000 Personal Bests!
* Members from 225 athletics clubs!
* Incredible course records from Olivia Walwyn, Dave Mitchinson and Jane Clarke!
* A LOT of very sweaty and dazed people!
* Copious amounts of coffee and cake!
* A very happy National Trust Centre manager!
But, the ingredient without which would render parkrun a dead duck, is our army of incredible volunteers. Finding 12 helpers each week is no mean feat, but you have responded to the call for help on every occasion, and in a truly selfless manner: to name a few - Chris Wray, Kay King, Kathy Findlay, Natasha Mcglinchey, Will Gentry, Sarah Tudhope, Libby Ashton, Andy & Catherine Young, Tina Foster, Jim Hayes, Chris Merrylegs, and many, many more.
On behalf of the Core Team (Janet Acott, Mandy Beresford, Chris Brown, Ross Haddow, Clive Hedges, Gary Linder, Lisa Othon, Karl Read)
We look forward to celebrating with you Super Heroes on the 18th October
