    Dishley parkrun Loughborough continues to attract fast people from fell running clubs, presumably desperate to find 5km of totally flat running. Today's results show the fastest finisher being Joseph Dugdale of Cumberland Fell Runners, with second place being taken by Harry Bolton of Keswick AC. They are very welcome here, but do they need to travel so far to find flat running? Should someone start a Silloth parkrun?

    NO that's probably about where he is these days. He hasn't been "competitive" for a few years.

    I have now ascertained that these two Cumbrians haven't travelled here just for the parkrun , they are now students at Loughborough University.

    When the Dishley parkrun was started last Summer, there was speculation that once the University term started, we would see some very fast times with Loughborough students turning up. It hasn't really happened; there have been only 3 sub-16 first finishers so far.
