Higginson parkrun (Marlow)

Race Date: Saturday, 23/02/2019
Race Distance: 5 Km

This riverside parkrun in Marlow, Bucks, is relatively new (this was only number 26), but well organised and a nice easily handled number of runners (195 today). You first do two laps of part of the park, past the rather exaggerated statue of local boy Steve Redgrave (if he really has buttocks that big, he'd have sunk all his boats), then run a couple of kms up the towpath, turn around and come back. My watch said 5k exactly. I have to admit I put my hand up when they said 'any milestones' to boast it was my 450th, something they couldn't quite believe.
