Street parkrun 2nd Birthday 02 May 2020 Run Report

Individuals, couples and families set out along various local routes at varying times throughout a beautiful sunny day to celebrate Street parkrun's 2nd Birthday.

In an emotional speech, Event Director Tim Rice launched the event saying 'a lovely day for a 5k, Happy Birthday to everyone who's joined us to volunteer, run or walk over the two years to make Street parkrun part of so many people's health and wellbeing fix every week. Hope to see you all again soon'.

Congratulations were given to Adrian Costanza running his first ever 5k. A first run was also completed by the newest addition to the Burrage family. Welcome to Street parkrun Adrian and baby Burrage, hope you enjoyed yourselves.

Numerous PBs were recorded throughout the day with several people even opting to extend their runs they were enjoying themselves so much! Lee Howard chose to run his 5k twice on consecutive mornings, one for each year of Street parkrun.

Jon Forsyth was delighted to be first home at the Beech Road course and Sally Culliford was first lady to the 5k mark before continuing her 10 mile Street to Glastonbury return route.

Many courses were dog friendly, although Rich Coles questioned the suitable of his hound Mouse as a pacer!

Enormous thanks were given to timing and barcode scanning volunteer Tommy Hooper at the Hooper family event.

Some fantastic fancy dress costumes were spotted during the day, no doubt bringing a few smilies to passers by.

The run photographers were various selfies and family members. See the Street parkrun Facebook page for the full set of photos. A complete collage and a selection of a few favourites are also available on flickr and included below.
