Event #152 – Yellow Yellow Yellow – 12th Nov 2016

Saturday saw us see one of our juniors achieve a milestone run.

Congratulations Rooey on your 50th parkrun!!

It was great to be able to join in and help celebrate a junior achieving such a milestones. This is what parkrun is about, creating a place where everyone is welcome and where we can run, jog, walk around our park and know that we are all supporting one another. Its creating a family, it is creating a community.
