You forgot your barcode?
I think he means that the CB won't show as its the same event!
Yes it the same event for some bizzare reason they had to leave Homewood after 12 events, moved 2 miles down the road to Ottershaw and didn't change the name... :shock: :shock:
So essentially, they've changed venues but kept the name? In that case until they do you'll have to be shown as not having run a new "event", and you won't get a CB. You wouldn't have been shown as having one at your first run at a new venue anyway.
It's never gonna change names and have run "both" courses twice, I only mentioned it in passing really as is quite unique... Had it changed from "harder" to "easier" course it's no big deal but a few people are unhappy that they will never better their course times... :(

Update done for last Saturday: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0

I think Geoff is going to lose his number-of-runs-done record to tractakid this summer ...

what I can't understand is why when ur doing all the stations and obviously in a differant area each Saturday and could attend many that you would obviously normally why wouldn't you take the oppurtunity.

i think I am too ... but as it's not a competition to have run the most, or who's been to the most number of unique venues, i'm more than ok with that.

i did just notice though that South Norwood starts up on July 8th, London thus gets a new official parkrun (i.e. within the Greater London boundary)

because i'm either 1) on a train (e.g Gainsborough Central where you have to be on the 9am service on a Saturday), or 2) exhausted (I spoke to Al, i was going to go and join him at one in Birmngham yesterday, but my cosy hotel bed offering sleep was far more attractive)

even when i was down in Penzance at the start, Penrose was cancelled the exact Saturday that I was there, so i couldn't do it.

it also means lugging your running gear around with you, in addition to everything else i'm already carrying.

trainers shorts, shirt I have thought u have had them in luggage anyway can't understand the exhaustion because for example I'm regulary up at 5am to travel. but can understand some of the Saturday only trains but surely there must be at least one Saturday that doesn't need to be a train at 9 to 11am, otherwise chilcraft will become the top dog :lol:

Just because you do it, doesn't mean anyone else does ...

true true I'm number 3 or 4 in the country for the most differant ones with a small gap to how many repeated so I'm regulary up at 5am to travel still got loads I can do. my point was if I was doing all the stations and had 34,000 pounds to fund it i certainly take my time and try out differant parkruns I usually wouldn't in fact its easier for me to get to Inverness for example than say Dover.

Anyway, here's the updated table: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

A PB for crypto breaks the deadlock with Geoff, and moves him ahead. Tractakid is now two runs behind Geoff.

I've got 99 parkruns but Rushmoor ain't one...

I was at Lymington Woodside in the drizzle last Saturday for my 99th parkrun.

Next Saturday, 1st July, I intend to be at Rushmoor parkrun for my 100th. This will also see me complete every parkrun in Hampshire. If anyone can make it, you are welcome to join me.
