About this parkrunA single lap on compacted gravel paths with a testing rise in the final third. Be prepared for cold days, it's very exposed and the wind can whip around. Starts on the runway of the old Greenham Common airbase.

1 big lap of a windswept former airforce base. All gravel trails and gently undulating, can be puddly and windy and bloody cold in winter. Free parking, cafe isn't that good (only 3/5 stars hygiene last time I was there)

At Greenham Common over the old air base. Big, wide, open venue with a single lap on firm, mainly flat trails. Plenty of space for everyone. Enjoyed this one but the course isn’t quite as fast as perhaps you’d think. Defo not short....

Single lap with a new and improved start area which has improved the congested start. Flat and gravel paths, but hard than it looks mainly if the wind is against you!

One big undulating lap. Lovely atmosphere and well organised. The old airbase control tower has been renovated and serves drinks and cake. You can go up the tower to get some good views over the surrounding countryside and see where you've just run.

One big airfield lap a little surreal especially as horses run out from nowhere and Gobi is talking all the way round. Parking is good free and nearby.
