Parkrun arrived at Marquis Drive on Cannock Chase three weeks ago so today I went along to see what it was all about. The gentle 5K route is perfectly mapped to enjoy the terrain and a host of brilliant marshals encourage you on your way around the loop. Hundreds turned out today to take part in this free weekly run adding to the atmosphere and spurring you on.
The perfectly organised event even allows you to learn your run completion time with results sent later to your email address and posted online. I ran with the buggy which handled the route well.
All in all, I’m pretty pleased with myself and I’m looking forward to next week! Let’s see if I can knock some seconds off this week’s time.
