Saturday's event turned out to be a celebration of Mick Elwell's magnificent achievement of reaching 500 parkruns and the first at Walsall to achieve this. Mick was well supported by family and friends and great to see so many milestone t shirts in support.

The occasion was made even special with Ursula, daughter Carol and 2 Granddaughters running with him with Elizabeth achieving her 10 milestone and Eve celebrating her 9th birthday.

In addition to this Mick and Ursula are both members of our Core team and are at the Arboretum early every week regardless of weather to ensure the course is checked and set up then help put away afterwards. Both have completed well over 300 volunteer credits although would be close to 500 as this wasn't recorded the same way in the early days.

Well done and thank you Mick we are very proud of you from all the Core team, volunteers and all the Walsall parkrun family

Although not official milestones worthy mentions to Helen Phillips, 300 & Linda Cundliffe 350.

I'm pleased to report our friend Peter who had to go to hospital as a precautionary measure returned home yesterday afternoon and was settled and comfortable, thank you to the marshals and runners who stopped to assist and make sure Peter was okay
