Tooting Common parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 28/01/2017
Race Distance: 5 Km

This was Tooting's first-anniversary celebratory run but it nearly didn't happen. Two cars had parked on the course and there was talk of postponement. At the Lido, the 2017 Cold Water Swimming Championships were taking place (and some of us complain about running in this weather...) and limited parking had resulted in some daft antics. Thanks to the run director and other volunteers the cars were moved and the event got underway at around 09.30. New to me, it's a pleasant, flat three-lapper mostly on tarmac paths.
