Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Went back to Lancing Beach Green, my usual. Had some problems with my hip being stiff for a few days prior so left my "lucky" shirt at home, not wanting to waste it on a failed run. It was a nice cool day, slight breeze, and I fell into a good pace early on, staying close enough to a holistic pacer*...

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

I'm pondering a bit of tourism next weekend, can anyone recommend anywhere that's within two hours (rail) travel from Brighton and doesn't involve much non-Southern/Thameslink/Southeastern/Great Northern travel, please?

Re: Return of the Photo Quiz

One thing I probably should've mentioned is to PM me your answer so others can guess too.

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Missed my train to Littlehampton so went along to Worthing instead after my two main runs were both cancelled for seaside events. Wore my PB shirt and got a course PB with little effort - I could've easily gone faster, but still took a minute 15 off my previous best time at Worthing! Great going Ja...

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Accidentally got a new PB this week! Wanted to better my course PB back at Hove Prom for the 4th birthday/250th celebration for a mate, but still wanted to keep Lancing Beach Green as my overall PB. I missed the 14 second window for that, but in the best way possible - I took seven seconds off my 5k...

Weekly Highlights 22JUN

jamesthegill ran his 100th parkrun at Lancing Beach Green, to honour him Iain finished in 100th place at the same event :shock:
There's a certain synchronicity there, considering I only knew about parkrun through this forum!

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

I believe there's a new parkrun starting in Seaford (East Sussex) a week tomorrow - March 2nd.

There will be rail replacement buses running between Three Bridges & Brighton and Three Bridges & Lewes so plan ahead.

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

jamesthegill ran sub 28 mins for only the 2nd time in 77 attempts. I'll fully admit that I was dragged to this time by a friend who wanted to run with me for the last time before she moves to Manchester! Now that my regular running buddies have moved away, and having free rail travel in the south e...

What is currently in Brighton and Guildford; is also in Manchester, Bicester and Leicester but in disguise; and formerly in Carlisle and Glasgow?
Two of the disguises are Village and Piccadilly.
