Woodley Park Run - 13th Oct 2012

I ran the inaugural Woodley Park Run today. The morning was blessed with clear skies and dry underfoot, perfect running conditions. The route around Woodford Park consists of 3 laps, over half of which is on tarmaced paths and the rest around playing fields, definitely suitable for racing flats if dry. There's a few twists and turns but apart from a short, sharp climb up by the lake on each lap the course is generally flat. 148 competitors ventured out on the new course, some clearly drawn from the ever popular Reading Park Run, a few miles to the West. Danny Norman, UK Communications Manager represented Park Run UK. With 287 runs to his credit I think this makes him some kind of God! Danny blasted round the Park in 17:02, a full 1:30 mins ahead of second place but as we know it's not about the placings but the personal challenges and going by the beaming faces of the finishers Woodley is sure to be a success.

Regards, Simon Turton
