Moors Valley Parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 30/12/2017
Race Distance: 3 Miles

This was my 5th go at the Moors Valley parkrun. It’s just down the road from my folks’ house in the beautiful New Forest. I thoroughly recommend this one if anyone is visiting the area. It is a single lap course run on gravel trails through the forest & a final loop around a pretty lake with a tarmac path. The locals were complaining about a bit of mud on the course, but it was certainly nothing compared to Wimbledon Common! Without trying too hard, I ran exactly a minute quicker than last week at Wimbledon & took the first female spot. Lovely cafe & coffee afterwards topped off a perfect morning.
