March parkrun celebrated its 250th event in style at the weekend.

Runners dressed up in as much colour as possible, with Georgina Jackman also volunteering for the 250th time.

Ian and Kerry Adam Scott-Logan dressed up for the occasion, with the latter managing to clock a personal best.

A group of regulars, nicknamed the 'Tickiboo Ladies' were also in their element, as Kanina O'Neil made history as only the fourth female to finish first since the first event on January 21, 2016.
