College Park parkrun had a fun weekend having taken part in the local July 4th parade, but it’s always as much an opportunity on the Saturday for celebration and achievement.

Peace Valley parkrun had milestones to celebrate and tourists in town.  Next week is a combo celebration of 50 events and the one year anniversary.  We look forward to seeing the photos!
