Newbury parkrun


I roamed further afield this week to visit Newbury parkrun as Other Dan was away running one of the Polish parkruns. Newbury parkrun takes place on Greenham Common, which is famously known as the  former Royal Air Force station RAF Greenham Common and the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp. The …

Nonsuch parkrun


My Saturday morning routine usually includes Mrs Dan waving me out of the front door and asking which made up place I am visiting. She’s accepted that Gunnersbury Park, Norhala Fields, and Busy Park are all real places – she’s been there and seen them all. Hilly Fields, Raphael Park, …

Riddlesdown parkrun


Riddlesdown parkrun this week in our quest to become Lon-done. Only 5 parkruns inside the M25 for me to complete and they’re all the awkward locations that we’ve been diligently ignoring. Thankfully Riddlesdown is easily accessible via the M25 so the mileage may have been high but the journey remained …

Peckham Rye parkrun


We’re back on the Lon-done parkrun trail with a visit to Peckham Rye parkrun. Other Dan met me at Hanger Lane and I drove us through London to Peckham Rye Park. We didn’t really know what to expect from this one other than we knew it was flat and run …

Milton Keynes parkrun

We had planned to visit Peckham Rye parkrun this week but Other Dan dropped me a message on Saturday morning to say that his foot still wasn’t 100% so I was on my own again. I wasn’t going to visit a Lon-done parkrun by myself so looked around the outside …

Rushmere parkrun

Time to test the legs again following Country to Capital and I picked Rushmere parkrun out of the virtual hat for somewhere to visit while Other Dan recovers from a foot injury. Rushmere Country Park is located at Leighton Buzzard and is managed by the Greensand Trust on a not …

Janathon 2015 – Day 2: Hell Freezes Over


Other Dan suggested Black Park parkrun this week because: It’s close enough to allow us extra time in bed. It was pacer day and he was going to try and help a friend go sub-20. We’ve run here before and we like the course. At 8am The Son casually mentioned …

Bromley parkrun

The tarmac paths of the Bromley parkrun winter course were a welcome sight for the concluding leg of our parkrun New Year’s Day double. Parking was easy, finding the start & finish areas was easy, and the run felt easy compared to our muddy adventure at Lloyd parkrun. Again, we …

Lloyd parkrun


A break from tradition as I left the safety blanket of running the Serpentine New Year’s Day 10k as part of the Eagles club championship series and instead met Other Dan for an early morning drive through London to deepest darkest Croydon. We’re slowly working our way to Lon-done (running …
