Pitchcroft Park Run #86



This was my first and (so far) my only Park Run.  It was thoroughly enjoyable and I ran with two members of my family who are habitual Saturday morning Park Runners.

Park Runs are free to enter and are to be found in almost all corners of Great Britain and throughout the United States where (like many good ideas) they originated.

They are not so well known in Europe and in fact do not exist (at the time of writing) here in Austria.

But there are Park Runs in Italy, Germany, France and several other European countries.

The place to start if you wish to join a Park Run or act as a Park Run volunteer is www.parkrun.com where you will be able to register and download a credit card size barcode which will serve as your number. The print page contains six copies of your bar code and unique number.

As soon as you are registered you can happily turn up with your barcode at any Saturday morning Park Run anywhere in the world (normal start time 9:00 am) and run in your chosen event.

That's all there is to it.

The 'Bard' powering up Pitchcroft's finishing straight!
