It’s a shirt worth around £20, so even paying for postage is a pretty good deal and you’ve already improved your health for free for at least a year before hand.

I'm there every Saturday. Great to get a P.B. Although remember, it's a run, not a race.

It's getting ridiculous at this stage. Do they draw out of a hat who gets to post this each season?

So the t-shirt is free but post and packing isn't. Seems fair to me. Getting my 50 after this weekend!

Did my first park run this weekend, and absolutely loved it. For the last 9 weeks I ha completed the couch to 5k app on my phone, and have been running 5k consistently for the last 2 weeks within 28 mins and 30 mins. Prior to completing this app I could probably jog for around 15 minutes before stopping. Got round the course in 29 minutes, however my Strava said I’d completed it in 28 minutes weirdly! It’s a lovely atmosphere, but I can see why people would be put off with the large amount of participants, as it can get a little trick navigating the paths so close together, which will inevitably eat into your timings if your that way inclined. I’ll continue running 3 times in the week andwill be doing it again this Saturday!

This guy did it in 13 mins 48 secs https://www.irishnews.com/magazine/2017/02/10/news/we-asked-the-parkrun-world-record-holder-how-to-make-running-enjoyable-this-winter-928616/

Park Run is for all abilities - I’ve only done it a few times as there’s actually two many people at my local making it too slower pace and crowded for my liking. Just because the two guys who work hard to maintain a fitness level and were joking over who should take first showed no visible sign of effort doesn’t mean they didn’t try? I run a lot of half marathon, 10k’s and sometimes full marathons too - I get beat by a lot of people but I strive to beat my own personal best times so naturally I’ll beat others. I hope they don’t get upset like you?!? I want to be the quickest and best, although accept they’ll always be people quicker, better and who have trained more than I. Running (like all sport) is competitive. You did realise this before you went along and stood at the sidelines, right?

Serious runners may do parkrun as a fast training run. It's regular, timed and exactly 5km, so is a good measure of fitness. Do you run?

Started doing these this year - crazy mad 600+ people of all ages etc all getting fit at my local one. Dogs and babies in buggies too... Great fun, though kills my right knee (apparently "runner's knee" is a thing) so have a support for it curious to see if it fixes the 2 days of intense pain I get after each run. Well worth registering for the "get your time texted" as I can check my progress on my phone. Plus, amusingly, it's the only text I get nowadays as we've all moved to WhatsApp! Also, you get freebies! On my first run in Jan they were handing out bags of the forthcoming Persil washing capsules.

Big thank you op, I don't know National trust did runs. So last Sunday I went and joint the other runners at Clumber park 10k. A very enjoyable run and free. Thank you for posting.

The best things you can get for barcodes are the credit card/key fob ones. They’re less than a fiver delivered and scan every time. I’ve had trouble scanning the wristbands in the past

I'm happy to see the Parkrun logo once a month as it's such a power for good. And it makes a change from seeing Ronaldo's ugly mug every bloody day on FIFA 18.

Love parkrun. Has anyone tried their new barcode flatbands at all?

Sweatshop runs are hit and miss in terms of numbers depending on the store (i.e. a few stores have a reasonable number of runners, others closer to zero). A bit like Runners Need runs (my local Runners Need store on the website claims to have a run once a week, but in reality has no such thing and insufficient staff to allow a staff member to lead even if they were willing to!) If my local one is the same as the other stores, the "rewards" for regularly running with Sweatshop are now rather less generous.

Several good parkruns in the HUKD Strava group yesterday. Well done all. Link to the club in first post.

Can someone lend me an 8 year old? I could probably manage 2K, but I think 5K is out of my league.

screddajames

If find starting off in the company of others a bit intimidating (I did) there are plenty of Couch to 5k apps and the like out there that support you through the Programme solo. I downloaded the free NHS podcasts to an mp3 player and used those. Have never looked back (the dog loves it too!) https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/exercise/get-running-with-couch-to-5k/

Good effort!

#dfyb ! I lost over 4 stone through running, helped a lot by parkrunning every weekend. You can run it however you want. I use it to test myself and benchmark my speed. It's not exact of course. My first event I ran it in 28 minutes and 24 seconds. About 7 months later (and 2 weeks ago) I smashed it in 21 minutes and 41 seconds!
