The 3rd annual World’s Shortest Fun Run around the UK’s smallest park took place in Burntwood (Sunday September 9th) at Princes Park and scores of runners, many fun run first timers, of all ages (6 months to 84) all abilities (none to very little) plenty of fancy dress and zany costumes, dogs of all breeds and colours, babies aplenty too.
Kevin Wilson of organisers KP Events said the day was a roaring success; “It was a fantastic late summers day, the atmosphere was incredible, so much fun and miles of smiles on show. Our event partners Burntwood Town Council helped make it a great event and we’d like to make it an annual event and grow it and convince the Guinness Book of Records to recognise it as a proper World record attempt!”
