A Nordic Walking milestone: First to join the 50 parkrun Club


The 15th of November marked a first in the UK when a Nordic Walker poled her way around a Nottinghamshire course to become the first ever Nordic Walker to reach the parkrun 50 Club! Well done to Angie who completed the 5k event with a huge smile on her face and was met at the finish line with cheers and greeted by none other than the founder of parkrun, Paul Sinton-Hewitt CBE.
