Millfield parkrun 100th event...

Saturday 24th September 2022

Cast your mind back to Saturday 22nd June 2019 and the first parkrun at Millfield parkrun in Easingwold.

Since their initial meeting in late January, the Millfield parkrun team had worked hard to raise funds, establish a course, get together the equipment, undertake the training needed to organize a parkrun and hold a test event.

They had many questions ahead of their first event. How many would turn up? Would the parkrun in Easingwold be sustainable? Would they meet their vision of changing lives through community exercise and volunteering?

Fast forward to January 2020 and with almost 250 weekly participants the answer was a resounding yes.

Just a few weeks later however, these questions were asked again. Would the parkrun recover from the 71 week Covid hiatus?

Last Saturday and their 100th parkrun milestone answered that question with an emphatic yes. Over 200 participants and volunteers arrived in time for the usual 9am start. What a win for the community!
