A milestone of 50 parkruns each has been reached by Sarah Flourentzou and James Lucas.

Sarah Flourentzou and James Lucas have both made it from Couch to 5k and to the first milestone of 50 parkruns each.

Sarah, who set up Flo&Co Running Team, reached 50 parkruns two weeks ago and at the weekend completed her 52nd park run with James completing his 50th. That’s a combined total so far of 510k or 316.89 miles on park runs alone.

To date, Sarah’s 5k personal best is 23.38 minutes and James’ personal best is 19.05.

The 50 milestone is celebrated by parkrun UK sending out a free 50 parkrun T-shirts to runners who make it to the 50 club.

Parkrun was set up in October 2004 as a volunteer led 5k free running event and just 13 people ran that first time, with now over 4.5 million registers runners taking part for free. Both Sarah and James are now targeting the next milestone of 100 parkruns.
