the parkrun show (general)

Nicola was at Leeds parkrun (again!) and whilst listening to Red Red Wine on her iPod Shuffle, figured she'd done 270 laps of that course. It made her pine for new parkruns to mix it up. Danny went to Oxford parkrun after an EPIC journey and as a result learnt about Sri Chinmoy. The pair also bring you news about amazing volunteers, Grandad PSH and even a pinch of innuendo.

They also bring you the Volunteer Interview about the 10 metre/50 metre Bushy funnel and they touch upon Gary Donald's first place finish as an MWC.
