Linwood parkrun, Round 1

I had been looking forward to the start of Linwood parkrun, it’s extremely local and offers an option in the parkrun repertoire from our house. One thing was for certain it was going to be a bumper attendance as #1 parkrun’s are always very popular with on this occasion runners travelling from at least as far…

Springburn parkrun, July edition

Intermittent showers over the course of journey to parkrun this morning settled my dilemma on whether to use a rain cover in the buggy or not. The rain had eased to a shower so much so with a little drizzle falling another runner arrived into the park and joined me on part of the warmup to…

Pollok on parkrunday

A wee local parkrun trip to the familiar surroundings of Pollok Country Park on parkrunday (formerly known as Saturday)  saw us arriving before 9am in the fairly deserted Burrell Car Park.  We got organised and set off on a short warmup mile and on our return the numbers had swelled beyond the usual 400+ runners. …
