How has parkrun changed your running / fitness: My first parkrun was on the 3/11/2012 with 74 runners – Bruce Fordyce, Rhain, Jenna and Stefan van der Merwe and my hubby (Sagren) volunteered, parkrun gave me more fitness and great inspiration to run and you can see it especially the younger kids.

I’ve got two more parkruns to complete before I join the tourist club and I can’t wait.
