Thanks to all!


I just completed the course this morning with my first Parkrun.

Many thanks to everyone for your positive and encouraging comments in the forum over the last 9 weeks.

To those just starting and feeling it a challenge I would just say, trust the programme. As a 52 year old bloke who really struggled in week 1 and has just done 5k in 29 minutes I can assure you that it really does work!

To those of you thinking about a Parkrun. Do it! It's great fun, very welcoming, and a real incentive with no pressure.

  • Really well done, great time.

    I'm hoping to do my first parkrun next week for my graduation run, just not sure how I'll cope with the early Saturday morning!

  • fantastic time!! am just starting week 9 and I think I am one of the worlds slowest parkrunners - this weeks time was 43:27!! but enjoyed it all the same. I can't wait to wear my C25K graduate t-shirt!!
