World’s Shortest Fun Run Causes International Incident

Princes Park in Burntwood is Europe’s biggest park, second in the world to the official Guiness Book Of Record’s smallest park – Mill Ends Park in Portland Oregan.  KP Events Kevin Wilson who is organising the Virgin Active World’s Shortest Fun Run in aid of We Love Lichfield has sparked an international outcry after saying the Portland park is just a plant pot in the middle of the road.  Take a look at the hilarious KATU News Video and interview with Ross Hawkes from Lichfield Live (KATO) plus other coverage from the US of A.  Obviously this story will just run and run (get it?)
