It’s a reason to celebrate when someone reaches their 100th parkrun and the Peel Road Runners Pips group celebrated in style when Sarah French crossed the line for her 100th time at Kingsbury on Saturday. Dressed in acid house colours for an ‘80s celebration, Sarah was joined by Alison Dolphin, Kelly Porter, Lee Guffick, Wendy Bowyer, Stephen Andrews, Roger Eastaff, Christine Norris, Ann Hill and Claire Guffick who all finished in a poptastic time of 49 minutes.
