Kev Burns’ Milestone Amidst Freezing Conditions

In another part of the country, Kev Burns completed his 100th parkrun in Ellesmere Port.

His achievement, clocking a steady 29:36, came on a weekend where several events were cancelled due to the freezing weather conditions.

Kev’s dedication to parkrun, evident in reaching this milestone, serves as an inspiration to the running community.
