Swindon parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 01/07/2017
Race Distance: 5 Km

The name Swindon doesn't conjure up the nicest image but I was off to Gloucestershire and this was the best location on the route. It turned out to be in a lovely country park which I would never have discovered otherwise. They run the two-lap course in one direction for three weeks of the month and in the other direction on the fourth week. This was the other direction but obviously that meant nothing to me! There were 417 runners which is close to Wimbledon levels but unlike in Wimbledon I was able to come first in my age category.
