Town parkrun reaches 30,000 milestone

MELKSHAM parkrun will celebrate its 200th event on Saturday 10th June and in that time over 30,000 people have taken part.

The 5km event – first held on 16th December 2017 – takes place in the King George V Park every Saturday morning at 9am, where those attending can walk, run, jog, volunteer or spectate.

“Since we started, over 30,000 people have finished our parkrun; congrats to Ian Meiklereid who was the 30,000th finisher to cross the line on Saturday 27th May!” said one of the volunteers, Ty Mansfield. “It’s incredible to think that so many legs have crossed the line!”

Melksham town councillor and Melksham parkrun volunteer cllr Colin Goodhind added, “It costs nothing to take part in parkrun, just Google Melksham parkrun and register to run and/or volunteer; it’s as simple as that. In return you’ll have the opportunity to join like-minded cheerful people at 9am on a Saturday morning doing something that’s healthy and being cheered on by enthusiastic volunteers.”
