What a brilliant day of celebrations we had on Saturday. Event number 95 at Whinlatter saw two members of the team complete their 100th parkrun together!
Congratulation to Jo Gruchy & Tanya Coates who have had the double milestone achievement planned for some time so that they both reached 100 parkruns on Tanya's birthday! Ever the selfless duo they were prepared to give this up to volunteer instead when we thought we'd be short of volunteers, but enough volunteers came forward so they were able to run.
To celebrate there was cake, balloons, a birthday gift and naturally a Whinlatter poem...
Jo & Tanya have Jasper the dog, he likes to run, especially in bogs!
A huge part of the team, they volunteer & run, but most importantly they bring lots of fun!
Jo holds the record for the longest tail walk, a role where she's met loads of nice folk!
It's a special day for Tanya, so we'd just like to say... A very happy birthday hip hip hooray!
The planning is complete & no more can be done, congratulations to you both on your 100th parkrun!
The course and volunteers were all decorated to celebrate this special day and everyone enjoyed the cakes at the end.
