I think the council class locals as people who can run from their front door to the park and back.

I usually drive over.

Not sure really, to be honest I run there to maybe see some of my running club members, so maybe I missing the point of lockdown.

Actually, there is a park nearer to me, that I've run a flatter 5k, so will use that from now one

Pete, I would say if you pay your Council Tax to the same authority that runs the park, you are entitled to run in it. I know these are extreme times but it simply isnt right that you would be denied access to a park that you effectively pay for.

Family parkrun for me this morning. First parkrun for my boy (aged 5) and second my my daughter (aged 8). Both really enjoyed in an we finished 10 minutes quicker than my daughter's first run all around 52 minutes. I think my boy would have run a bit more if we hadn't walked so much at my daughter's request but the walking breaks probably helped him at the end as well.

Good point HT, though it was parkun making the request, so I respected it.

Did a 5k run in a nearer park. A nice flat course, so nearly 2 minutes faster.

Will stick to this park for the rest of lockdown.

Got something to say?
