“This morning I ran 57 laps of my garden. I think it would be great to see some really crazy runs in small spaces being recorded. 😁BRR keeping fit and social isolating” Claire was assisted by her son Corey as Marshall and chief lap counter. Fantastic effort Claire.
Claire inspired me to run a Parkrun in my garden.
Inaugural Rivendell Parkrun went really well; some tricky switchbacks and tight corners. Bit smelly with muck spreading going on in the field next door and running round the dustbins. Despite a late start, set a course record, was first finisher, first in my age category and managed to volunteer as tailwalker. Cafe was open afterwards but missed my usual Parkrun chums x (Dee Smith)
A torrential downpour during the first 3 miles made for a very wet race, despite the sun coming out! A great course, although not as flat as I remember with 3 good climbs on the road out before coming back on the flat Tarka Trail.
Scores on the doors/watches: Ben 1:39:45 Emma 1:43:51
Hope everyone has had good runs this weekend, it’s been a busy one for races! 💙
Parkrun joined forces with the This Girl Can campaign to mark International Women’s Day this weekend. In the spirit of the day, Lanhydrock saw female runners outnumber the men, with 6 women running their first ever Parkrun. Girl Power!!!
