I hope you didn't type it all the second time! My son did his gap year there 2016-17. We are going to meet up with some of his friends and colleagues for a few days. They were amazingly kind to him so we are looking forward to meeting them! It looks a beautiful area.

Haha just a quick double click.
I loved my time there, 1 hour to lake constance and the Alps, not much longer to Munich, has the Danube running through it..and now parkrun too! One day I will go back and run the marathon there (Einstein marathon) and the parkrun..

Excellent news rhb! I thought this one might have fizzled out. Salford council tweeted in Jan 2017 that it was starting in April.... 2017.

Forestry England have put out a FB call for volunteers for a new parkrun at Mallards Pike Lake (Forest of Dean).

Much more in the middle of the forest than the current ones. Plenty of forestry road around there if they choose to do a route that way. Plenty of trails if they go a little muckier. And plenty of elevation if they choose to use it.

Potential Drumpellier parkrun (Coatbridge, Scotland) looking for interested parties for a core team. Nice park with a lot of fairly flat woodland trails and a loch.

There may be an inaugural parkrun happening near you. Best to check with the local parkrun volunteers to see if they want you to know about it or not.

Otherwise there are plenty of already established parkruns to go to in the UK and abroad, see: parkrun.org.uk
