I thought my time at Southwark was incorrect and has now been adjusted to 32:08... Still my slowest time in 4 runs there but a little more respectable...
interesting - the results text I got (and results when I first checked) had me a minute slower than the time when I went to look at my result later in the day

I missed that. Fixed.

Table updated on the same day as the runs (I know, what am I doing?)

Anyway, nothing much to report apart from a course best for tractakid at Southwark, and a new runner in fatbuoy. Not a bad first effort. Watch him soar up the table in the coming weeks.

Well I went down to Exeter on Thursday, the plan was Taunton races, premier league darts, Exeter vs. Chesterfield and Exeter Riverside parkrun... everything was cancelled and I had no intention of trying to drive god knows how many miles in dangerous conditions to try and find the nearest one that was still on??? Would be interested to know what it would have been... :?

Some internet person made this map. An impressive number open given the circumstances! That said, I went for a run in the afternoon (not wanting to trek down to Woodley) and running on snow is easier than one might expect.

we could all help Neil by telling him the info rather than having him look up 4-5 weeks worth.

Neil, i'm on 204 parkruns i've not PB'd at all recently, i AM thought now in the 45... age category (have been since last year!), and I ran Hoblingwell this morning, to take me up to 67 venues. And as far as i'm aware i'm the only person on the forum that has run there.
(And means that i have completed all of London again).

aaand that's me. anyone else?

Two new parkruns start next week on the 17th, one near Subury called 'Hazlewood' and a NEW london one, at Royal Victoria docks.

Andi and I did Hoblingwell three weeks ago.

I'm happy to tell Neil the info if it helps. Neil?
