Wyre Forest parkrun

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

My favourite parkrun course (its a single lap) but I need to rethink my tactics. Need to start nearer the front as the congestion caused us to stop. Then the mental challenge of running further and further downhill for 1.5km knowing you have to go up again. The first climb (it starts sharply) is straight after the "bottom" and then follows the middle of the course with plenty of undulations. The final drop's appeal is minimised with the knowledge that the toughest climb immediately follows which takes you to the equivalent of a Tour de France mountain top finish. So it's not a course on which you can gain time at the very end.
