We invited the C25KM graduates to complete their 5KM run at Gt. Lines parkrun on what turned out to be a cold and windy morning - Not the most ideal of conditions for your first 5KM but it certainly didn't prove to be a barrier as they all got their heads down and pressed on regardless!
It was amazing to have them each issued with their certificates confirming their awesome achievement and we trust that in the weeks and months ahead they will clock up many more KMs/miles as they further embrace their new running journey.
Here are a few words from Natalie Gould who is one of our coaches:
It was lovely to come home from work today to see the Great Lines parkrun results and my news-feed full of photos of happy runners! 😄
I am so immensely proud of everyone involved in the C25k, not just the amazing graduates who have stepped out of their comfort zone to achieve this incredible feat (in some awesome times too!), but also all the people who have helped in some way by giving up their time to support and encourage the new members of the club. 💓
I feel so thankful to be part of such an incredibly supportive community and to know that all our new runners had at least one buddy with them today. 👏🏃
Very well done Medway Fit, I am beyond proud of you all!! 😚
