Black Park parkrun

Wow!  One lap.  Wide paths.  Woodland.  A perfect parkrun for lud-runners everywhere.  Or at least those who are within spitting distance of Slough.

A word of warning though.  Take shrapnel and plenty of it.  The carpark is pay and display and the ticket machines only accept coins, don’t give change and reject one coin in three just because they can.  If it weren’t for the kindness of strangers willing to swap coins, I’d still be there, feeding coins into the machine in a triumph of hope over experience.  Like those people who get the “Seek Assistance” message at the ticket barriers yet persist in trying their Oyster cards three more times ‘just in case’.
