Mile End parkrun

Race Date: Saturday, 14/03/2020
Race Distance: 5 Km

With no trains running into Waterloo this morning, I had to look for an alternative to my planned parkrun. Mile End fit the bill - reachable by a direct District Line train and within reach of Victoria Docks for my post parkrun dip. Starting on the Regent’s Canal side of Mile End Stadium, this is an undulating two lap run in Mile End linear park. Notable features/challenges were: the climb over the ‘Green Bridge’ in the middle of the park, a narrow section on the tow path next to the canal and deposits left by the Met mounted police on an early morning ride. Good facilities at the stadium including lockers (20p).
