Tring’s kilted parkrun

It all started back in 2015 when one of our RDs dared another Tring parkrunner, and fellow Scot, to come dressed in their (real) kilt to do a parkrun. Chris Ken Then in 2016, the word went round a few other of the regulars with Caledonian connections to do the same. By the following year,... Continue Reading →

(...with a wee bit of dramatic licence along the way) Getting to parkruns which you have never done before can be a bit stressful.  If you’ve had to travel some distance that morning to arrive at your chosen venue, then there are the usual known-unknowns: will we get there in time?where can we park, (is...

Heading East to Osterley (Tourist parkrun #25)

It's 7.00am on Saturday 28th August, and we are London-bound for our next parkrun excursion. Fresh from our Liverpool adventure the previous week, and no date yet set for Tring restarting,  we decided to head east (from leafy Buckinghamshire) to a rural spot in leafy London-shire, just inside the M25 orbital.

We had read about Delamere parkrun from our... Continue Reading →

parkrun 001 Genesis at Greenhead

Greenhead Park, Huddersfield was where my parkrun adventure started. Our reason for being "up north" on this occasion was to visit our daughter (also a parkrunner). My wife Cathy (another parkrunner!) had "done" Greenhead Park on a previous visit to Huddersfield, whilst I had stood on the sidelines as spectator. I remember watching the different...
