What a great day we all enjoyed on the 6th October when we celebrated the 8th parkrun birthday. It was also the inaugural International parkrun Day. I have seen quite a few videos from Australia, New Zealand and Poland along with a couple from the UK.

I attended Bushy parkrun, the home of parkrun, where I ran with the folks towards the and of the field and I had a real reminder of what makes parkrun great. The Bushy folk did us proud as usual and this has been captured on a short video here:

Thanks to everyone for your ongoing support of parkrun whether that is as a runner, a volunteer or a sponsor / supporter. I remain eternally grateful for your influence on my life.
