If anyone wants to check which ones nearby are running, go to https://www.parkrun.org.uk/special-events/

I might swing by Preston Park, depending on timing - I like to go out for my "12Ks of Christmas" run and watch the sun rise over the sea, so I'll see how that lines up.

Hoping to do Preston Park NYD to complete my Brighton set :P

Andy and I took a trip to Littlehampton along with a couple of non-forum friends. A two lap, flat out and back, giving me my fastest time for several years. Back under 30 minutes by nearly a minute :D

I did my 50th parkrun at Upton House Parkrun today. Christmas Day, my plan is to do Southsea parkrun. A PB on Christmas would be the best present!

Kingsbury Water last week was my first properly muddy course. As I suspected, I didn't enjoy it very much because of that, not helped by it being very narrow in places, so therefore difficult to avoid the really muddy bits. Will hold off a repeat visit until it's much drier!

Nice one!

I had a fun but not fast run at Roundshaw Mudfest, including slipping in the mud and falling into some brambles. The other runners were great at checking I was okay, and the team helped get me cleaned up before heading home.

I've only just realised that they got rid of the NYD double bubble, otherwise I would've turned up to Hove Park for 10:30 tomorrow :shock:
