thought we should have a specific parkrun thread given theres a few people doing it around the country. Anyone who has never done it but who fancies a try check this out: http://www.parkrun.org.uk/sunderland/home The sunderland one is a decent size, ie not too big - 100ish most weeks, and has runners from early teens to early 70's. Some people do it as a race against other runners, some race the clock and others use it as more of a social thing. Its good fun and can be a good target to help with your weekly training. It keeps me out of the pub on a Friday night so its not all good like!!!
