Mick Cronly completes his 100th parkrun in style
A warm sunny morning greeted the participants at last Saturday’s Mountlucas parkrun.
Over 60 people participated and volunteered to make for a very enjoyable run. However, the warm weather did make for challenging conditions, particular towards the end of the run.
Mick Cronly celebrated his 100th parkrun in style and was supported by his wife Anne, his children and his grandchildren, who came along to cheer him on his way.
This milestone was all the more impressive as Mick suffered a serious illness in 2021. Speaking after the event, Mick said that his involvement in the weekly parkrun played an important part in his recovery.
Parkrun is a free weekly timed 5k event for runners and walkers that takes place every Saturday morning at more than 2,000 locations in 23 Countries across the world.
Mountlucas Parkrun is based at Mountlucas Wind farm outside Daingean, so why not turn up at 9.30 am on Saturday morning to see what it is all about.
