A dedicated parkrunner

klaus now

It’s taken Klaus Kildermand a while to get to his 50th parkrun, which he celebrated this past Saturday at Vejen parkrun. Running his first parkrun in 2011, more than 7 years have passed for him to reach this milestone. But that’s not because Klaus is lacking any motivation to come down to parkrun on a Saturday morning.

As the Event Director for Vejen parkrun, he has volunteered many more times than he has been a participant and has been one of the main people keeping parkrun on the road in the small town of Vejen all this time, for 384 events, with the team never missing a single week since they started in March 2011.
He celebrated his landmark run on Saturday together with a tight-knit group of 15 Vejen parkrunners, which included seven ‘100’ runners and another four ‘50’ runners. Despite having a previous PB of 20.14, this time Klaus was the Tail Walker for this week’s event, coming over the line to the applause from the other parkrunners.
We look forward to 2025 and the next celebration of a milestone t-shirt…..or maybe it will come a bit quicker next time?!
