Name: Colin Thoms (‘twice-around Colin’)
Age: Young at heart
Home parkrun: Hagley
Number of Runs: 64
Number of times volunteered: Most Saturday mornings (at least 30 times)

One thing we love about Colin is: His dedication, willingness and great volunteering spirit!
My most memorable parkrun moment was: This week we managed to catch a photo of him doing his good work!
