Thanks Nellers - I'll give Sarfend a try in the summer :-)

Chelmsford has a bit of a hill and it narrows a lot - and it's big (444 today) so there's traffic pretty much the whole way if you're anything like mid-pack.

I'm told Colchester is really slow?

Colchester is all Tarmac but the usual course does 2 and a bit climbs up from the river to the castle. That saps the speed.

Cambridge is good and fast. The narrowness of the first kilometre slows things down a bit, but for most runners that is a good thing. After that it's all pretty wide over hard trails.

I wouldn't count Cambridge as fast for anyone of my speed nowadays, Glenn. It's much busier than it used to be, and I've sometimes had to walk over the first bridge. And trying to get any kind of pace over the first k is impossible.

But everyone should come along this Saturday, and give it a go. It'll be busy, and slow, but the most fun parkrun around at our fifth anniversary run. Fancy dress, and lots of cake :-)

I'm hoping to make my debut. I'll try to wear a fetch top if I do. I need the stickers.

I'm easy to spot and will be starting at the back. You'll hear Drell before you see her.

I'll be scanning bar codes so you'll find me at the end. Tiger Feet is going dressed as Harry P with her friend as the Hungarian Horntail
