30/04/2022 - & some very special people.

& to wrap up our parkrun news, we want to congratulate a very special lady.

Conkers have a wonderful annual tradition of celebrating participants with their awards presentation, and we are super proud of our very own Mo Danvers for winning the Veteran Runner award, presented to her by Fiona Betts (in fancy dress, of course!)

Mo said: “Conkers parkrun 11th birthday awards today (awww) and look what I got 😎💕.

When you’re a slow runner always at the back of the pack, it’s not always easy to feel part of all things running. Except at parkrun. And ESPECIALLY Conkers parkrun. A warm inclusive community where so many of my dearest friends and soppiest twats come out to play every Saturday.

Happy “veteran” here 🤓. See, there ARE benefits to getting old 😉.”

We think you are fantastic Mo! Keep getting out there, doing your thing, and showing everyone that running really is for EVERYONE. ❤️❤️
