We're now a year and a parkrun old, and each week we have new parkrunners joining us and many reaching new milestones. This week Ubaid Murtaza joined the 100 Club, making him the latest member of his family to clock up 100 runs. His dad Ghualm is 27 short of his 250, brother Aasim has completed 192 and Aamir was our first 250-er and has now done 271 parkruns, that's 786 between them!
Our Junior Volunteer of the year George Webster picked up his award, as did our Junior parkrunner of the year Elin Cave. We welcomed Sam Cullen and her team from Lloyds TSB who joined our volunteers this week.
