The tarmac paths of the Bromley parkrun winter course were a welcome sight for the concluding leg of our parkrun New Year’s Day double. Parking was easy, finding the start & finish areas was easy, and the run felt easy compared to our muddy adventure at Lloyd parkrun. Again, we ran together for the two and a bit laps of Norman Park as we kept an eye on the first finisher to make sure that we (just) didn’t get lapped.

A bigger attendance for this run as Bromley parkrun typically brings in over 400 runners. I suspect parking becomes more of a problem on parkrunday proper. It’s a fairly unassuming park with a simple course (both summer and winter) but we enjoyed our jog around the park before heading back through the still quiet streets.
