the parkrun show (podcast)

It's an all-girl show covering the happenings in parkrun world on International Women's Day. Nicola went to South Park... no, no that one, the one in Darlington with a huggable hill. Kerri went to Preston Park parkrun to celebrate her birthday, but she's not telling you how old she is. Chris Cowell completed 250 parkruns (with a tourist list as long as his arm) and there's news of the second most important moment in parkrun history.

This week Nicola managed to persuade a friend to take part at Leeds parkrun. Shame she forgot to impress the start time and barcode routine. Meanwhile Danny went to Brandon Country Park parkrun on the north Suffolk border. Shame he forgot where he put his keys. They also bring you loads of other parkrun related info.

Whilst Tom was in Geneva doing l'Escalade and Martin was doing 0.7 miles more than a Marathon along the Jurassic Coast, Danny was slip sliding around Ally Pally with a collective of parkrun nomads and asking the kids what they think the parkrun fox should be called.
