Thetford Parkrun celebrated its fourth anniversary with a turnout of 203 runners and walkers.
The town’s mayor, Terry Jermy and consort Corinne Fulford attended to present its annual points competition trophy winners.
The female adult winner was awarded to Natalie King and the junior female to Zabella Starzycka. The male adult winner trophy was presented to Richard Crewe and junior to Jacob Chamberlain who won the award for the second consecutive year. The volunteer award went to Geoffrey Herschell who has taken more than 1,000 photographs of Thetford Parkrun, which began four years ago with nine runners.
A cake sale raised £110.57 towards buying a defibrillator.
Event director Melanie Sturman said: “We are very pleased we have reached this milestone and thank you to the entire community for supporting the weekly parkrun.”
