I'm moving house shorly and it looks like Hilly Fields will be my nearest parkrun.

I appreciate the clue is in the name, but how hilly is this parkrun? I don't tend to get on well with hills and I'm a bit worried from a couple of comments on the event website that it's actually mountainous!

Thanks!

Try SallyKate - she's involved in organising this parkrun. The hills are steep. I've not run it so can't comment specifically.

Hi Stripes,

It's really not *that* bad! It's three laps of an undulating course. One uphill stretch is gentle, one is sharper but shorter - straight up a short hill, if I count my strides when I run up it it takes about 60 strides I think - anyway, it's over quickly, and as soon as you reach the top you're running down a gentle slope the other side. I can take a look at my Garmin and try to download an elevation profile if you like!

If you're after a flat-as-a-pancake course then Dulwich is only 3 miles away...

Just get in touch if you want any more info about Hilly Field parkrun or anything else to do with the area :-)

Thanks for the information! It doesn't sound too bad after all so I will probably man up and come along.

Now all we need to do is find a flat...!
