I am no fan of swearing but to leave a couple jobless and a town without it's pub is shocking. I don't really want to support Sam Smiths any more.

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

I enjoyed a fantastic midweek parkrun in Germany at Neckarufer, Esslingen. The Wasserhaus bridge was a brilliant, unique course future and the event director was so kind as to give all the tourists there guided tour of Esslingen in the afternoon. It's a wonderful old town. On Saturday, a much overdu...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 1

What a daft twist. I made my own special protest on the way back by crossing the Thames 4 times by rail. :lol: I made a daft error at Brondesbury Park- I would have made a train before Hugo & Tangy had I not gone towards the wrong platform. I made a daft error at Westferry. I should have waited for ...

He has said he doesn't want to give away anything to do with his route. Plan your own route, do your own research and make it truly your own attempt-it will make it more satisfying if you get a good time. 😊

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

King George V Playing Field parkrun is a bit of a mouthful. I was always going to see my Grandma today, and I spotted this parkrun last night (having only just been added to the website!) when I finally got around to making my mind up about where to go. It is a 5 minute jog from her house and theref...

Staying overnight is a whole separate category. It's what I am doing to go to Somerdale Pavilion this Saturday, travelling by train.

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Bit stupid to drive 120 miles to parkrun and thn the same back again, but Tawd Valley parkrun was fantastic. Proper course of two halves, the first half was an urban cyclepath under 4 underpasses, the second half was a narrow, muddy trail through a pretty river valley. Just the one lap too. I realis...

Quick trip up the Thameslink to St Albans, which is a really pretty course with PB potential. I did wonder if I might bump into Mr Chilcraft en route to Jersey Farm, but it wasn't to be.
