Wimbledon Common parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 26/08/2017
Race Distance: 5 Km

On Friday we were told that the hornets had returned and their nest was close to the start of the parkrun course. After checking various options, I chose to route the runners round the mounds from the last corner, moving the start forward and the finish back to partly compensate for the extra distance involved. The course was still too long, hence the lack of many PBs, but better a long course to a short one (bogus PBs) or none at all. Most of the comments liked the change taking people to a different part of the Common, past the memorial to the soldiers mustered there 300 years ago.
