2nd Parkrun in the summer tour and a new PB!


Witney run last week and today, spurred on by the lovely weather and my new watch and my new socks and my new top I managed to somehow to pull it together and finish with a PB at the Chichester Parkrun. It’s 3 times round the park which has a 30 metre incline according to Strava. Now onto Peckham Rye next weekend which is a nice flat course, then onto Swansea, Oxford, Buckingham and Worthing. I’m doing as many as I can before I head back to the sandpit of Bahrain where there is 0 chance of running outside till late October/November. Happy running everyone! 😃

Enjoy it while you can! 😁


Well done you! Keep up the good work ... happy running!


Hello Brian, is that the park next to the college. I live in Southsea so not far away from Chichester. Mind you, I’m not used to a 30m incline. At least it means there will be a downhill too. It must be unusual to be in UK when it is constantly hot, even though less so than UAE

Enjoy the rest of your Parkruns

Hi Dexy, yes the one by the theatre and college. It’s good fun because the course is quite short and there’s always someone nearby or in the distance to focus on. I really dislike running downhill. I find it hurts my shins. The next run looks to be flat in Peckham though so it should be better. Really enjoying the weather but we need rain soon here. I miss rain 🙁

I so agree. Southsea common is parched golden brown. I’ve never known it so early in the summer. I feel so sorry for the gardeners trying to keep the plants in the public areas going
