Park Runs and various races
Jean Drummond recently celebrated joining a small number of Farnham Runners who have completed 250 park runs. She was the third member of her family to do so, along with her husband Robert and son Christopher Cramp.
They have joined a small but growing number of Farnham Runners who have now completed over 250. Mike Anderson was the first to achieve this milestone and has now done 302, while Tim Cummins has clocked up the most with a colossal 372. Terry Copeland has completed 339 and Colin Addison, and Geoff Brown have also earned the prestigious 250 parkrun T shirt.
Stuart Haig was delighted with his first podium finish – third place at the very challenging Queen Elizabeth Country Park Marathon with an excellent time of 3:25:22. The route consisted of two laps, each with 500m of ascent. John Walker clocked 4:18:34. The other Farnham Runners competitors were Kate Townsend and Clair Bailey who tackled the half marathon route in 2:17:47 and 2:34:28 respectively.
