Parkrun, thinking of doing one

Hello everyone. I finish C25K tommorow morning with week9 run3. By happy coincidence, I will be in UK during week 46. So... I was thinking of doing my first parkrun. I will be in Rugby, and I used to work in Leamington, so I thought I'd do the Leamington parkrun.

Anyway, I've registered for the parkrun barcode thingy on the website. I was wondering what I need to do next, do I have to register for Leamington. Do I need to register somehow for 15th Nov? Or do I just need to turn up before 9h00 on staturday morning?

Hi Zev1963 you just turn up, run & get the barcode scanned at the end - it's really that simple! Have a great run!

Thanks SumoSue. Strangely the email reply is empty. There is a title "parkrun links reminder for Zev1963" but nothing inside apart from a google advert. Maybe they have a bug.

Try again ........

They are still just sending me empty emails, but never mind, maybe if I try in a few days it might work.

Just turn up WITH YOUR BARCODE at any park run in the UK and you will be welcome and get a timed run. You can also turn up at any park run without a barcode but you won't get a timed run.

Ah OK thanks. That's good, if I dont need a barcode, as I've requested the barcode several times and I just recieve empty emails.

AHA, in fact I just got home and opened the message in WindowsLive instead of the email provider's site and now I see the links :)

That is wierd, in the free webmail site, I see nothing in the email.

OK so now I have barcode :)
