Killerton's first centurion

Good number again this morning at Killerton parkrun... and most important, Maggie Hunt was the first of our number to hit the 100 run milestone. A lovely lady and a happy time in one of the most stunning places in Devon... well done to all the volunteer crew this morning too.

Fancy a trip to Killerton in Devon?

Another fantastic turnout this week with 235 runners, boosted by 65 first timers and representatives of 26 different athletics clubs including many parkrun tourists taking in the beauty of the Killerton parkrun route in the sunshine, run entirely on the National Trust grounds.

It was the 4th week in a row with over 200 runners and the car park is filling up, and although there is capacity for more cars in the overflow car park, parkrunners are reminded, if possible, "to arrive by foot, by pedal-power or by public transport if you can - your efforts help to reduce our impact on the park and the planet." If you need to travel by car, please consider sharing with other runners.

Well done to the 41 runners who recorded personal best times this week and congratulations to Sophie Clough who completed her 10th run to qualify for a junior T-shirt. There are also a number of Killerton parkrunners who are approaching 100 runs at Killerton and we expect to see our first home parkrunner reach this landmark very soon.
