Andrew's been digging a tunnel for months so he can sneak into the prison and get a cheeky extra parkrun ticked off!

There's really no need to do that Peter. There aren't walls at Springhill! A prisoner wanting to abscond would walk right out... and then face the consequences when they get caught again.

It's my 50th tomorrow! I'm thinking Highbury Fields if anybody wants to say hi. I've sort of dropped off the map lately, but I can prove I still exist :P

I will be at home for a friend's 250th parkrun.

I have heard some people are partaking in some extreme parkrun tourism... heading abroad in order that they can parkrun and still watch the rugby live!!

Looks like another week off parkrun next week for me next Saturday :D

Week after is free though, anyone doing anything in the south London vicinity?

What happened? I see that Nozza didn't run and that you ended up at Crane Park?
One day I shall return!

Nozza couldn't make it in time due rail replacement buses not tying up so he planned to do Basingstoke - My friend Paul was coning and hadn't done Crane before so we decided to head there instead as is a good course in bad weather - BUT despite the fact it was 7th visit there I parked in the wrong place, couldn't find the correct park entrance and ended up jogging an extra 500 meters or so and missed the start by a minute or two :roll:

It's certainly a great run, but I'll be watching the rugby

Didn’t make parkrun in the end foot still to sore to run on SWR not very helpful with train times due to engineering work. Now starts a run of volunteering locally.
