Park runners showed they love West Norfolk following a recent celebration day.

Participants and organisers of the regular Saturday 5K Parkrun held at The Walks in King’s Lynn, helped to spread the word after February 14 was designated as Love West Norfolk Day by those spearheading the special campaign to promote the area.

 They took advantage of the promotional material produced for the event including images for selfies and letters spelling out the #Love West Norfolk message.

They held their own #lovewestnorfolk run with a turnout of 366 runners, despite the Storm Dennis warning. 

Event director Gary Walker said: “As it happened, conditions in The Walks on the day were not anything as bad as expected and the run all went very smoothly with 33 of those taking part achieving a personal best run.

 “It was also a time for celebration for Terry Gamble, a regular to Parkrun, who took part in the very first event held in King’s Lynn and who was running his 250th Parkrun in The Walks.”
