Perth parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 24/08/2019
Race Distance: 5 Km

In 1396, on Perth’s North Inch, 30 handpicked men of Clan Mackintosh fought 30 of their enemies, in the 'Battle of the Clans'. 19 Mackintoshs died, but 29 of their opponents fell (and the other swam for his life across the Tay). There was a more friendly atmosphere in North Inch Park for this parkrun, a good chance to stretch tired legs on a lollipop course before driving south. Temporary repairs meant some extra work on a section of long grass, but on its day this could be a fairly fast course.
