Scunthorpe parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 05/08/2017
Race Distance: 5 Km

The start of the football season provided an excuse to do a bit of tourism in Scunthorpe. A figure-of-eight course mostly on tarmac paths with one short trail section through a slight downhill wooded section (with an accompanying uphill section on pavement outside the actual park). Usually they get nudging 500 runners (they're about to launch a second parkrun in the town to relieve pressure) but there were just over 350 this week as the steel works are closed to allow people to go on holiday with their families.
