Luton Wardown parkrun

Our parkrun tourism adventure motored up the M1 as Other Dan joined me to meet Simon and Alf at Luton Wardown parkrun. We brazenly laughed at our tendency to leave planning until Friday night by setting this one out last week when we bumped into the Eagles parkrun tourists at …
