So this weekend we tried out the Woodmead Park Run!
To signup and run a park run (for free), go to their website, it’s super easy to fill in an online form and get your barcode. You need this barcode to log your time, as well as Discovery Vitality members get points back for doing this run! Its also pretty cool, that after your run you get sent an email with your break down of how you did. See mine for the run I did at Lonehill (p.s my watch clocked me as under 39minutes… but anyhow!):
Distance: it’s was a 5km route around the woodlands office park. We were told to watch out for the animals, although I didn’t see any. 😦
Weather conditions: It was cool out, duh it winter, but was too unbearable.
Parking/Traffic: Parking was really easy and plenty of it, in the office park. No traffic issues either. This could have been because there weren’t as many people as Lonehill.
Event Organisation/Marshalls: Volunteers weren’t on the route like Lonehill. What I liked about Lonehill was there were guys on the route cheering you on and letting you know how you were doing time wise. Otherwise it is a volunteer based event, so really I gotta remember it’s not a normal paid for race event.
Vibe on the Route: None really, I am beginning to think these park runs are for people who just wanna run and then go home. We went with a friend so we still made it fun for ourselves. I did a relatively good time considering there were so mean hills!
So that’s two park runs done – next week we will hopefully try out our third, at Delta Park! 🙂
Have you done a parkrun?
