Is there a particular reason as to why not everyone is on this list? (Me, for example)
To get on the list at https://www.parkrun.org.uk/results/mostevents/ you have to have run in at least 20 different parkrun locations.

Without having to trawl back through the pages myself, can anyone advise how long this is likely to take?
About 6 and a half hours:

I'm interested, but won't be able to confirm until nearer the time.

Re: Tube Challenge Parkrun World Cup II (Scrabble)

I can declare that Drain Brain is our World Cup Scrabble Champion, Many congratulations! This Saturday I'm running as a 21 minute pacer at Littlehamton Prom, even if I run 20:59 this will not score enough points to surpass Drain Brain. Going Underground is going to take some beating in the 3rd/4th ...

Das improves his score, but not by enough to make any impact on the top two:
No improvement made by Soup Dragon or Drain Brain, and Going Underground didn't run.
I managed to get exactly the same end digit (7) as the previous week. :(

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

So Sweden has extra parkruns on its National Day

In the UK we have extra parkruns on our bank holidays Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

Do other countries do similar? How many worldwide parkruns could you complete in a year?

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

I'm aiming to start the new year at Whiteley with my first parkrun in what seems like forever (but was actually 7 April).

Not up to doing a double parkrun though.

Re: London Reconnections 2018 Christmas Quiz

11. The roadsign is wrong (and I mean the roadsign that is there is wrong, which was my misgiving after getting it immediately, as (and I don't think I'm give too much away) the only bit that is the correct colour on that sign is the white bit with the NR symbol in it.
