The HU C25Kers have two groups on Facebook, that many of us use alongside the forums here. The first is for those working through the programme and the second (newly created) one for C25K graduates. The links are below with the wee 'About' blurb for each group.

facebook.com/groups/C25Kers/

A group for NHS C25Kers to share running experiences. Beginners and graduates all welcome. I think it is only fair to include a link to the site that brought us all together:

Beyond c25k

facebook.com/groups/7562299...

A group for C25K graduates to share running experiences. This is a place where we can share stories, experiences and ask for or give advice as we continue in our running journey. Road runner, trail runner, hill runner - all welcome. Whether you like to enter races or prefer running alone, it doesn't matter.

Thanks,

Swanscot

-- hopefully helpful!! :)

Firstly I have found it helpful to know that every parkrun has a parkrun webpage PLUS a facebook page.

So, if I was to decide that I wanted to go to a new (to me) Parkrun somewhere in the world - I would firstly go to parkrun.com/ to decide which country I want to run in ( I will now choose Australia) , so I would go to the Australian parkrun webpage parkrun.com.au/ , I would then click on "EVENTS" to choose a particular Parkrun, and from the popup map, I would click on a particular PR -- in this case , I will choose DARWIN ( it should be lovely running in Darwin right now with the heat and humidity NOT!!) , so clicking on the Darwin icon will take me to their webpage page parkrun.com.au/darwin/ from which I can then go to the "course" page to see the map/details/instructions regarding their course parkrun.com.au/darwin/c... -- at the bottom of that map I would then click on the "View Darwin parkrun in a large map" link to get a good sized Google map of the course.

Then I would do a Google search -- Parkrun Facebook Darwin -- and I would then be able to check out their facebook page facebook.com/darwinparkrun which will show me pics of recent runs - what kind of people I can expect to see, get an idea of what the track looks like , etc

I would also then go back to the Darwin Parkrun webpage and click on RESULTS/NEWEST RESULT - to check out what age groups run there, what kind of times the fastest and slowest do, etc. For example, if you look at the 3rd photograph in the set of 178 photos , you will see a pic of some "runners" that I am certain that anyone here would be able to beat home!!:)

There is no need to go to a new (to you) Parkrun - blindfolded !! :)

There is this one as well, which gives you an assortment of lacing styles for different problems such as wide forefoot, high arches, flat feet etc. It doesn't mean you shouldn't get your shoes fitted correctly, but it means you can experiment a little to make them even more comfortable.

I'm doing C25k with one of the Run England groups and they're fab. Runs are great fun with them. Happy Feet in Worcester. They make sure we keep talking and laughing all the way round. 😃
