GALLERY: Runners turn out in force to celebrate Parkrun birthday in style

MORE than 200 runners, many in fancy dress, turned up to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Plymvalley Parkrun on Saturday morning.

In total 222 people completed the 5k off-road run around Plymbridge Woods.

Heavy rain during the week had left the course extremely muddy but no-one seemed too worried – even those in fancy dress costumes.

The birthday race also produced a great finish, with Ben Pugh just edging out last week’s winner Graham Bale by one second.

Pugh finished in 18.37 minutes, with Plymstock over-50 veteran Bale clocking 18.38.

Third was Ed Porter and fourth was Garry Smart.

Erme Valley Harriers’ Emma Lake was first women home in 21.24 minutes.
