Ex-champion, 88, completes 200th Parkrun

There may be a heatwave on but that did not stop Arthur Walsham complete his 200th Parkrun on Saturday at the age of 88.

He was given a guard of honour by fellow runners as he crossed the finish line at Longford Park in Stretford.

A familiar face on the Manchester running scene, Arthur won four world titles as a veteran athlete, and set a 10km record in 1971 which still stands almost 50 years later.
