The Return of parkrun! After 16 months in hibernation due to Covid-19, parkrun returned to the UK on Saturday 24th July to an enthusiastic reception. Eighteen Joggers were among those who visited their local parkruns and one, Jim Withers, ventured a little further afield to Stormont parkrun in Belfast, while visiting his Northern Ireland homeland.

Stormont parkrun, Belfast. Sourced with thanks from the parkrun website.

Some good performances this week of particular note: Neville Clarke (21:48) finished 1st of 11 in VM65 at Bury St Edmunds to achieve his highest age grade this year of 77.25% over all distances. Melanie Tindale (27:56), in her first club run of the year, came 1st of 20 in her VW40 age group at Ferry Meadows parkrun in Peterborough. Jim Withers (26:41) was 1st of 3 in VM65 at Stormont parkrun in Belfast. Jason Beeton (21:55) and Paul Roberts (29:29) both achieved course PBs at Thetford and Soham Village College respectively.

STOP PRESS! We have a brand new parkrun called Storeys Field starting up this Saturday on 31st July, near Madingley, Cambridge. We all love to be one of the first to run a new parkrun! The parkrun will be held in the new Eddington ‘sustainable’ development area to the west of the city. Geographically, it is to the west of the Huntingdon Road, to the east of the M11 and to the south of the A14/A428. The main loop of the course goes around a large cricket field, from which the parkrun gets its name. If intending to travel there by car, use the postcode CB3 0EU, which will take you to Madingley Road Park & Ride, a short walk from the parkrun start and free parking. However, don’t go along the A14 and down the M11 (as Sat Nav might try to take you), as there is no eastbound exit to the Madingley Road for southbound traffic. Coming on the A14 from Newmarket, you need to turn left down Milton Rd. Go all the way down Milton Rd to Mitcham Corner extended roundabout and turn right onto Chesterton Rd; then you should eventually fork right onto the Madingley Road soon after passing Castle St. Carry straight on for a mile or two and follow the signs to the Park & Ride, just before the M11 junction. It should be a 16 mile journey this way. It’s a hassle going through the city centre but this is the only convenient route without incurring much more mileage. At least the traffic is light in the city on Saturday mornings. Hope to see you there!
