A lovely morning at Richmond, celebrating my 50th parkrun – where it all began in 2012. Someone pointed out this morning that it’s a somewhat unusual ratio of parkruns to marathons (138). Although not the most noteworthy milestone in terms of numbers or time taken to complete, it is in some ways the most significant. At first parkrun provided me with a safe place to begin running, and since then it has led to opportunities and adventures which I could never have dreamed of five years ago. But most important is the people parkrun has given me. I have had a wonderful time because of you #loveparkrun

Next Event Countdown
We are Jacquie Millett and Camilla Langlands – mother and daughter – and over the past five years we have run over 100 marathons together, as well as many other events at different distances, from parkruns to ultramarathons. When we run together, we don’t always run alongside each other, but we’re there close by to share the experience, whether triumph or disaster (fortunately there aren’t too many of them).
We have an amazing time running in the UK and many other parts of the world. We’d like to share some of our experiences, and hope you will find them informative, useful and entertaining.
Our approach to running and training is not strictly conventional, as will probably become apparent, but this is how we run and we hope you enjoy reading about it.
