Saturday marked a very special day for the Lynn Parkrun, with it recording 100,000 runners having crossed the finish line since it first started in September 2011.

It also marked a collective 500,000 km or 310, 685 miles covered during that time by those that have participated in the 3-lap course around The Walks, which takes place every Saturday morning.

Regular parkrunner Nigel Richards, who can often be seen running in the Walks, was the parkrunner who crossed the line at the milestone point and was met at the finish by Lynn Parkrun event director Gary Walker.
