I'm going to be back in the UK over the Easter long weekend with family, and thought I'd try my hand at a parkrun. The last time I ran in any sort of organised event was at primary school sports day full of "everyone's a winner" and "coming last is better than not taking part" platitudes. What can I expect at a parkrun? What time do I need to arrive, and what sort of pre- and post-run formalities are there? I've looked at the times on their website, and my 5k performance so far should not lead to any embarrassment, but I don't want to turn up late or make a faux-pas. I assume park runs will take place on the Saturday of the Easter weekend as usual?
