Bedgebury Forest Parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 28/10/2017
Race Distance: 5 Km

I was looking forward to this Parkrun, a one lap course through the beautiful forest with wide paths and less than 120 runners. It was a lovely morning and I set off expecting a good run but I had reckoned without the hills! Soon after the start we started climbing and the hill went on for 1K gradually get steeper. I was so exhausted when we got to the top I couldn't enjoy the downhill. There were 2 more steep hills the last just before the finish. I was disappointed with my time but cheered up when someone me told you could expect to be at least 2 mins slower than a flat course and felt even better when I got the top age grading of the day!
