13/05/2019 Wyre Forest parkrun #200 and new course record

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 200
13th July 2019

Today was our 200th event, so it was a fitting day for William Richardson to beat his own course record, setting it to an impressive 15:33 and shaving 2 seconds off his previous record. Congratulations again, William. It is interesting to look back over those 200 events and consider it was William who set the original course record at event number 1, where he did it in 16:15. That record would be unbroken to this day had he not subsequently broken it himself 8 times.

Congratulations to the following new club memberships:

  • Stuart Bird on joining the 100 club
  • Esther Lupton for joining the 50 club

We also generally don't miss an opportunity to dress up, the theme of the day was summer, which led to an interesting variety of outfits.
