Yes, the link should appear in his profile as soon as he hits the magic number. But there are serious supply problems, they've been out of 100 milestone shirts since the beginning of the year (if not longer) and are not expecting new stock until April. Not sure what the story is with the 10 shirts though.

Has anyone got a link to the Runners World article where the journo deliberately cut the course and they have reported that it is "easy to cheat" at parkrun. It's the one PSH refers to in his sad email to the world yesterday.

How bad was the RW article? Why does anyone expect anything better from a magazine which is 90% recipes and clothing ads? But a link to their poor journalism would be good if anyone's got it. Ta. :-) G
