Woodley parkrun

A parkrun road trip outside of the M25 boundary to visit Alan at his last Woodley parkrun before moving across to the dark side of London. It’s a 3 lap course around the perimeter of the park and mostly on tarmac path. Other Dan and Alan went off quickly into …

Hackney Marshes parkrun

Other Dan was away. Driving an ambulance in convoy to the Ukraine. Sounds like a rejected Top Gear jaunt, right? Ask him about the fun & games that they had on the way. Top Gear couldn’t make that type of stuff up if they tried. My excursion to Hackney Marshes …

Cassiobury parkrun

I seem to have some sort of magnetic attraction to Cassiobury Park over recent months. The first visit was back in November for the Grand Union Half. I parked in the car park and took the paid for race coach back to the official start area (it’s a point-to-point race). …

Crystal Palace parkrun

A trip to south London for me and Other Dan as we drove to Crystal Palace parkrun to go dinosaur hunting. We both used to visit the park in our much younger days to play in the park and roar at the model dinosaurs. I remember the 122 bus journey …

Roundshaw Downs parkrun

Time to bite the bullet and tackle the London parkruns in a galaxy far, far away. Every now and then I glance at the list and pretend that Orpington, Greenwich, Bromley, and Riddlesdown don’t actually exist. This week we forced ourselves to face the music and we headed over to …

Finsbury parkrun

More parkrun practice with the GoPro camera this week as The Son joined me and Other Dan at Finsbury parkrun. I tested out the headband mount to wear the camera as I ran the course. Except I screwed up at the beginning by tilting too high and filming the tops …

Wycombe Rye parkrun

We had planned another London parkrun jaunt but then Other Dan noticed that the Central line was out of action due to planned maintenance so he  found us somewhere new to visit where I could pick him up at the Polish War Memorial. I put my trust in Other Dan …

Mile End parkrun

I thought Mile End parkrun would be flat. It isn’t. It’s not hilly. More undulating (a bit). That’s not to say it’s a bad course. In fact it’s a cracking little course tucked away in East London with a lovely bunch of runners and volunteers. Other Dan was away and …

South Oxhey parkrun

A rare outing to a parkrun inaugural event as Other Dan joined me and The Son at South Oxhey parkrun. We tend to avoid inaugural events these days, to lessen the burden on the new event team as a hundred plus tourists descend at the same time to the new …

Brentwood parkrun

A drive around the M25 for me and Other Dan this week to help celebrate the 100th parkrun for Simon and the 50th for Jane (both fellow Eagles). There are two car parks near to the start & finish area and we plumped for the larger one, which is next …
