I have kicked off Janathon in style with two parkruns and an ‘athoner sighting. I also met umpteen parkrunners I’d crossed paths with before, including five people from my running club, three Reykjavikers, the race photographer and one of the Burnham Joggers.
For today, in London, it was possible to run three parkruns in quick succession:
- Bushy at 9am
- Banstead Woods, Nonsuch or Roundshaw Downs at 10am
- Riddlesdown at 11am.
By my calculations, 52 parkrunners managed the triple. Of those, Rachael Elliott was the fastest female runner, with an average time of 22:42, and Anthony Jackson was the fastest male runner, with an average time of 17:12.
Being more of a tortoise than a hare, I opted to skip the 10 o’clock and go straight from Bushy to Riddlesdown. Maybe next year…
