On this day in parkrun history....12th February

The 12th February is a rare date that has seen two different parkrundays. To be honest, even with my simple maths, that suggests that there are at least 52 such parkrundays as a minimum, as 2005 and 2011 seem to have shared the same dates for Saturdays.

Back in 2005 there was just a single parkrun event, in Bushy park of course. On 12th February 2005 just 27 parkrunners completed the Bushy park parkrun.

On 12th February 2011, 56 parkrun events took place, with 7,703 parkrunners completing their run that day. I took part that parkrunday, it was my 27th parkrun and I ran a new PB of 17:49. I have only had 2 new PBs since then!

Step forward just two more years to last weekend (9th February 2013), where 199 parkrun events took place with 26,914 finishers.
