Osterley parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 07/12/2019
Race Distance: 5 Km

With its grand flight of steps and neoclassical columns, Osterley House provides an impressive backdrop to the start, middle and finish of this two lap parkrun. The course follows lanes and paths in a large loop round the park, including an enjoyable short winding section of woodland path. There were some puddles and leaf covered and muddy sections, road shoes would still be fine for this time of year, although maybe not your favourite ones that you keep for special occasions. As a National Trust property, there is of course a good cafe for post run refreshment. Today was also the day of the Osterley Park Winter 10K, starting at 10:30 am, so a perfect option for those who like a parkrun-run combo.
