    Personally I didn't like big hill at the end :angry: or maybe I just set off too fast with the downhill start? But was good to have the toilets handy :thumbup: Martin was 2 seconds quicker than two weeks ago.

    MM, I know what you mean, but I always save a bit for that 'hill' (hump), it just meant bottling up the reserve for an extra 5+ minutes. If Martin and I were bth within seconds of our last times then it supports the general consensus (from my post race chat) that its much the same - just takes getting used to. At least the hill is not the last 250m - that would be cruel. I did Bradford a month ago and the 3 x little hill (think Woodbank x2) and the last mini-hill-sting-in-tail into the funnel, nearly qualified it for a fell run (tarmac paths aside)!

    I've only done 3 parkruns including today and they are all within 2 seconds. Today, I've done the exact same time I did 27 Nov 2010 ! How weird it that?

    Results out. Well run both. How about roping onto CLH next time?!
    Weirder still - you and I did near identical performance at 65.9x?!

    Staying with a friend in London and took part in my first ever park run. Bushy park a lovely park to run round, really enjoyed it what a blast! Really impressed how they just take place with minimal organisation. How can they be destructive 726 people turn up and enjoyed themselves!

    Seems like most of you enjoyed it then.

    John Doe - Is the loop around the back of the hall at the start........ before you head down the hill?

    Alright Sparth?


    Just found out there is meant to be a parkrun starting soon at Worsley Woods up in Salford - we really are getting spoilt for choice around Greater Manchester now
