Burgess parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 01/02/2020
Race Distance: 5 Km

A single lap out-loop-and-back route on tarmac paths in one of South London’s largest parks. The run starts at the west side of the park, follows a long straight path along the line of the former route of the Grand Surrey Canal, loops round a fishing lake and then heads back to finish with a short section on grass near the start. With 741 parkrunners the start was congested for the first kilometre or so - running on the grass to the side of the path was easier, although attention was needed to avoid a bench-kneecapping.
