The Blog Runner’s World Tour of Parkrun

For those of you who like a bit of variety, adventure and a good old run in the park on a Saturday morning, I have launched a new blog to record and share my latest running adventure: The Blog Runner’s World Tour of Parkrun!

Here’s a little sneaky preview!

Welcome to my new Parkrun Tourist blog, in which I bravely venture into the wonderful world of running in various parks across the UK at 9:00 am on Saturday mornings.

As a fairly recent convert to the running life, completing a 5K Parkrun was my first real running goal but, sadly, as my training has progressed over the last couple of months, I have found myself drifting away from the Saturday morning 5K running ritual to take on far greater distances, from 10K Road Races to a 100K Ultra-Marathon.

Apart from the fact that these longer runs leave me feeling completely knackered and wiped out, however, I do miss the fun and frivolity of the humble 5K. So, I have come up with a plan to get back to my Parkrunning roots (as it were) and take on a new challenge at the same time. I have decided to become a Parkrun Tourist!

The aim is fairly simple, at least in theory – to visit and run as many different Parkruns as I can get myself to for the next few months, or years, or however long I feel like doing it for.

So, if you fancy joining me on this little running, blogging, jogging adventure, please feel free to follow along and a leave comment to let me know you’ve dropped by.

And who knows? Maybe we’ll bump into each other on the start line sometime.

  1. Sounds like a lovely idea for a blog. I love visiting other parkruns, in Tasmania we have to take a plane or a boat because Launceston pakrun is the only one on the island. But so far I’ve managed to visit one on mainland Australia and two in New Zealand. Lot’s of fun!
