    Was definitely interesting conditions Lynne and, as you say, there will hopefully be drier conditions for NYD. I must admit I was in awe of those who ran just in t-shirt & shorts (I got as far as removing my gloves on the final lap!).

    Yes Bill, on our way to 56 in the year. I have sent this to Parkrun HQ:

    I ran my 55th parkrun of the year at Wilmslow on Boxing Day, the second successive year I have managed the maximum. With 52 Saturdays in the year and the chance to run an extra parkrun on Christmas Day, and two extra ones on New Year’s Day, the maximum that can be run in a year is 55. Or so I thought, until Don Bullough pointed out that some years there are 53 Saturdays.
    This got me thinking whether it would be possible to run 56 parkruns in a year.
    This is what I came up with:
    Whenever New Year’s Day falls on a Saturday there will be 53 Saturdays in that year but the maximum number of parkruns will still be 55 - Two on New Year’s Day (a Saturday), one on Christmas Day (a Sunday) and one on each of the remaining 52 Saturdays.
    However, if 2nd January falls on a Saturday in a leap year there will be 53 Saturdays that year and it will still be possible to run two extra parkruns on New Year’s Day (a Friday) and another on Christmas Day (a Sunday), making a total of 56 parkruns in the year!
    So, are you ready?
    2nd January 2016 is a Saturday and it is a leap year, so it is possible to run 56 parkruns this year!
    I will be having a try and, if all goes well, will also run my 250th parkrun on Saturday 3rd September.
    By my calculations this opportunity will only come along every 28 years. Therefore this is the first time it has occurred since parkrun began and will not come along again until 2044 (by which time I will be 94!)

    Mike & I ran Hit The Trail on Sunday to make it 4 in 3 days!

    You could have managed 57 parkruns Swoop if you'd done the Lancaster trial last Sunday afternoon, 36 runners on Sunday, I'm guessing there could be a few more on Saturday
