tommy_bThe old trusty @5k_new X account has the details of the new event.
That’s a lot of grass around the location suggested. Near a lot of water. Don’t know if there are paths or if it’s ok grass but if on grass then oof

sLicksterIt's 99% grass, and what isn't grass...was literally path wide puddles today. Muddy after the first lap, of three.
Was so cold from doing the car park marshalling (it's a bit of an odd situation, with certain areas for certain people - parkrunners, non-parkrunners, etc) that I decided to jump in and do the run too, but didn't have time to get changed out of all my waterproofs, so got a bit hot after 10mins!
Two local events cancelled last minute, so some came, but 115 in total. Went very well all things considered. Only tricky part was...ED forgot the finish tokens!!! But he had printed out extras onto paper for if there were more than 500. So first finisher got number 500 today.

tommy_bBetter to forget the finish tokens on the first event than the second or third when numbers increase and people turn up with tourism expectations!
