Parkrun washout!!!!!

A couple of days ago I announced that I was going to run at a new local parkrun (inaugural meeting) which is 1800 feet high. We got a LOT of rain yesterday - but I was hoping that the site on top of the mountain would be drier as it would have been above the clouds!!!! WRONG!!!! They got over 9 inches of rain within the 24 hour period - and it had to be called off!!! :(

Nine inches? Blimey, Bazza! They don't even get that much in Manchester! Hope they can hold the event soon.

It doesn't rain much here John -- but when it does!!!!!! We only got 3 inches where I live yesterday - but that was more than we have had for 6 months!!

Yes - the inaugural parkrun will now be held next weekend - the site will have dried out by then.

Blimey! Sounds like you could have swum it instead!

Wow! That's some rain! What a shame for everyone. I'm sure it won't dampen people's enthusiasm for next week!
