Heslington parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 13/10/2018
Race Distance: 5 Km

Heslington parkrun is a youngish parkrun (this was event #35) based at York Sports Village to the East of York University’s campus. Numbers were boosted by the cancellation of York parkrun due to York Races and with tourists for the Yorkshire 10 Mile and Marathon the following day. The route is a 1 km lap of the sports village’s velopark, a 3 km out and back loop on one of the campus perimeter roads, and a final 1 km lap of the cycle track. Conditions were a bit blustery with the tail end of a storm passing over and the road section had a couple of large puddles that necessitated running along the curb to keep feet dry. Pacers for the day were provided by GoodGym covering a wide range of paces. Good facilities at the nearby Sports Village.
