I live in Oxford. I know there are three parkruns about the same distance to me (Cutteslowe, Harcourt Hill and Abingdon. I'm currently on my final week of C25K and surprised myself by running 5K for the first time today!
I had been planning on building up to the distance before dipping my toe in the Parkrun water, but it looks like I may be ready sooner than I thought.
The one concern I have is that so far I've been running almost exclusively on hard surfaces (tarmac. paving stones, hard earth/gravel paths and I know I'm going to find it tougher on grass and softer ground.
Can anybody give me some advice about this, and perhaps recommend one of the runs?
