If you are coming to Basingstoke tomorrow, please make sure you go to Crabtree Plantation (details on the website) rather than War Memorial Park, as the park is being used to set up for the half marathon. I'll be there with my camera tomorrow!

Why do you think I am taking a camera? With a half marathon the next day on a dodgy foot Crabtree would be suicide! I think one of my boys is running. He's only done one parkrun, not sure he's going to like Crabtree...

I actually quite like Crabtree, though agree that second lap is pretty tough at the end!

Off to Guildford tomorrow though, in theory to introduce my gf's best mate to the wonders of Parkrun. Will be a bit miffed if she is a no-show.
