The Parkrun Man Runneth..... His 100th Parkrun

Back home  /  Latest News  /  The Parkrun Man Runneth

Curry Rivel resident and stalwart of amongst other things Langport Runners and Curry Rivel Wildlife Survey Group, David German, is set to run his 100th Parkrun at Montecute House, Saturday 26th August 2017.

When asked David, who recently celebrated his 79th birthday, said "it is quite a demanding course compared with many and it will take me about 35 to 40 minutes depending on whether I stop to chat to the marshals".

When asked about when he started running he also said "I started running in school cross country and disliked it a lot. Joined a local running club when I first noticed I was having difficulty when I tried to look over my shoulder whilst reversing my car when I was around 50 years old."..... Well there seems to be no reversing gear in his running these days.........

As David also says "running won't kill you, you'll pass out first".....
