Melksham parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 10/03/2018
Race Distance: 5 Km

A relatively new one in deepest Wiltshire - only the 12th running. Their website says 3 laps, but actually it's only 2! The course includes the King George V Park in Melksham, Wiltshire, taking in the Riverside Walk and the Forest Community Centre field. It is run on hard trail paths, compacted gravel and grass, uneven in places. Some sections of the course may accumulate mud, leaves and puddles after rain, (and can be extremely slippery!!!!) There is a narrow section so please be aware. This course is unsuitable for pushchairs. We’re afraid that we can’t allow dogs due to the nature of the course. (We would recommend trail shoes!!!) Very handy for the free parking in the nearby Sainsburys. They were very friendly and enthusiastic and there are a number of loo options, and even showers. Only 82 runners this week......they have had double that which is probably a bit chaotic given the course.
